EarthLiner is a waterproof corrugated liner that’s engineered for recyclability.
EarthLiner® is an innovative liner composite material comprised of a clear or bright, white, mineralized, low density polyethylene surface on recycled, post-consumer and/or non-bleached virgin liners.
EarthLiner is a recyclable liner material that delivers a premium print surface comparable to virgin bleached fiberboards and Kemi boards but with the added benefit of waterproof barrier performance at neutral price.
Ideal for all types of corrugated packaging and POP display applications, EarthLiner may be to ensure your corrugated packaging or POP display withstands the rigors of its use under harsh water or moisture conditions.
In addition to corrugated applications, EarthLiner may be used for flexible pouches and product wraps among others.
Packaging made using EarthLiner often qualifies for the “Widely Recycled” How2Recycle* mark. *How2Recycle marks are subject to SPC approval. All inquiries should be directed to info@How2Recycle.org
