100 per cent oxy-biodegradable range from Invopak

Invopak recognises the industry’s need to take environmental issues into consideration when sourcing new suppliers. It has recently announced a distribution agreement with Polish company, Cheko, to stock its oxy-biodegradable square and rectangle plastic buckets.

Established in 1988, Cheko claims to be the first manufacturer to produce oxy-biodegradable plastic containers that are 100 per cent eco-friendly.

Thanks to the special addition of the modifying agent d2w® to polypropylene, Cheko’s containers decompose into water, carbon dioxide, biomass and trace elements in just a few years, instead of clogging up landfill sites for years on end.

Cheko’s products are all made from food grade polypropylene and contents are protected through a collar system which incorporates a tamper evident feature for added security.

Invopak’s Sales Director, Scott Sandilands, says, “Environmental considerations are a key issue in our industry. The sheer volume of packaging that is used in the UK means efficient disposal and recycling is vital. Cheko’s products offer our customers a cost effective, viable alternative to ‘environmentally friendly’ plastic products currently available.”

Invopak will be stocking a comprehensive range of Cheko’s containers ranging in size from 1 – 11 Ltrs.  Products can be digitally printed or in-mould labelling (IML) can be applied – even to short runs.

Cheko’s 20 production lines at its factory in Wloclawek, to the west of Warsaw, also offer both paper and plastic labelling facilities – meaning Invopak’s customer’s have a variety of labelling methods at their disposal.
