WICOVALVE® W609PP – world’s first recyclable mono-PP valve
Most WICOVALVE® types are already being made of 97-98% mono-PE. In comparison with other marketable valves of similar size, WICOVALVE® valves weigh 32% less on average, which has a positive impact on the ecobalance. In 2014, Wipf AG launched the first biodegradable WICOVALVE® W606E which is compostable according to industry standard EN13432.
Since then, Wipf AG has invested heavily in sustainable packaging solutions. Currently, various Bio-PE and PP valve types are available. They are made with up to 99% monomaterial. Combined with biocompostable laminates or flexible monomaterial laminates, it is now possible to create complete sustainable packaging systems.
