Hazen Earns Major International Recyclability Certifications

HOLYOKE, MA – Hazen Paper Company’s Envirofoil® has earned high marks from two major international environmental research facilities.


Silver and holographic variants of Hazen's transfer metallized Envirofoil® were evaluated for recyclability by two accredited testing centers, Interseroh and Lucense, located in Germany and Italy respectively. Envirofoil® is Hazen's environmentally friendly option for metallized and holographic packaging and print solutions. Sub-micron transfer-metallized Envirofoil® uses less than 1% of the aluminum of traditional foil laminate or film laminates. The aluminum layer is 300 angstroms thick (An angstrom is one ten-millionth of a millimeter). To illustrate: if you took a single Coke can and rolled it out over the area of a football field, it would still be thicker than the layer of aluminum on this transfer-metallized product. Additionally, Envirofoil® is brighter than other commercial transfer products, reading 850 on a scale of 0-1,000 on a Gardner Gloss meter, versus under 800 for other commercial products.


Results:


Interseroh, Germany: Scored 19 out of 20 in terms of recyclability. Hazen Envirofoil® has earned the ability to use Interseroh's seal "Made for Recycling" on packaging made with this substrate.
