Sustainable yet affordable solution for thermoforming that truly performs

Sulapac is the ideal solution for brands looking for a material that is affordable, more sustainable and doesn’t look like conventional plastic.​

Create sustainable point-of-sale displays, logistics trays, watch box inserts, food containers, mugs, plant pots, and more with sustainable Sulapac material for thermoforming. Sulapac can be both chemically and mechanically recycled, which is a highly important feature, as the residue in thermoforming accounts for 10-30% per material sheet.

Materials typically replaced with Sulapac include PS, PP, and PLA. Sulapac provides significantly faster and easier processing compared to PLA or rPET, which is why Sulapac is becoming the choice of preference for thermoforming manufacturers and brands looking for sustainable material options.


Easy to process material with natural look and feel

Developed to tackle the global plastic crisis, this innovative material offers a sustainable drop-in solution for replacing oil-based plastics in thermoformed packaging and goods.

Sulapac Flow 1.7  is safe for both people and the planet: The main components are wood from industrial side streams and biodegradable biopolymers with 72% USDA certified bio-based content.1 It is industrially compostable according to BPI and Seedling and leaves no permanent microplastics or toxic load behind2,3. Sulapac Flow 1.7 complies with EU and FDA requirements for food contact materials.4

Its natural texture and feel distinguish it from conventional plastic, while the level of detail you can achieve and the consistency of output ensure premium quality.

The material can be both mechanically and chemically recycled.The cradle-to-gate carbon footprint of Sulapac Flow 1.7 is 1,2 kg CO2eq/kg (biogenic carbon included).

The USDA Certified Biobased Product label is a certification mark of the U.S. Department of Agriculture.

2The compostability has been tested up to the thickness of 910 μm according to BPI (ASTM D6400) and Seedling (EN 13423 & ASTM D6400).

As the compostability is also dependent on the geometry of an item, it is the responsibility of the manufacturer of the end product to ensure compliance with the regulations.

3Relative biodegradation of 75,5% in 420 days in simulated marine environment test (ASTM D6691, 86°F / 30°C) using natural sea water. Not considered biodegradable in California.

Ecotoxicity and threshold values for heavy metals tested according to EN 13432.

Tested for per-and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) by an independent laboratory (ISO/IEC 17025 certified) based on CEN/TS 15968 test method; No PFAS compounds were detected.

4Restrictions and specifications of use apply, please refer to relevant Declaration of Compliance for further information.

5Both mechanical and chemical recyclability has been tested and proven technically feasible by a third-party industrial company. Field tests have also verified that Sulapac materials can be collected and sorted out of a mixed waste stream. When collected together, Sulapac materials do not interfere with the current mechanical recycling of conventional fossil-based or bio-based non-biodegradable plastics. The technology for chemical recycling of bio-based and biodegradable materials exists, but the infrastructure is still under development.
