Baralan: A recyclable and biodegradable biopolymer line requiring no specific injection moulds

The “Eco Baralan” line presented by Baralan at the trade show Édition Spéciale by Luxe Pack, which took place in Paris on June 4th and 5th, could stand as a major breakthrough for the development of more sustainable cosmetic packaging.

The new range, which was presented for the first time on the stand of the Italian company, is made with a biopolymer derived from renewable natural fibres (but from cultures dedicated to the food chain and not originating from Asia, specified the company). According to Baralan, the production process of this new “X-Code” biopolymer is similar to PP and SAN.

The “Eco Baralan” line is made from a new recyclable and biodegradable biopolymer, the X-code, which can be used with existing injection moulds.

The “Eco Baralan” line is made from a new recyclable and biodegradable biopolymer, the X-code, which can be used with existing injection moulds.

X-Code is recyclable, biodegradable and compostable. Used in injection processes, it allows producing sticks, capsules, caps, compacts and screw caps. It has a heat resistance of up to 120°C. Above all, it does not require the designing of new moulds, which guarantees production at an optimized cost and within traditional timeframes.

Baralan, with Labor Plast, its production unit, proposes its X-Code in a neutral colour because, according to the plastic converter, to date, there are no recyclable pigments available on the market. This is not stopping the Italian Company from continuing tests in the area as part of its continuous improvement process.

This is a strategic line for us and our customers,” explained Caroline Baranes, Global Marketing & Business Development Manager. “For this new reference, we cannot set a minimum quantity. It is evaluated with the customer because it is a real commitment that we take together in line with the responsible vision we both share.
