The European regulation on recycled materials, adopted by the European Union on 22 May 2018, aims to increase the percentage of plastic material recycling to 50% by 2025. Somater did not wait for the regulation to commit to the industrialisation of PCR (Post Consumer Recycled) materials. Somater already manufactures primary packaging in PETR (polyethylene terephthalate) and bio-sourced PE, a polymer made from sugar cane. Tests are also in progress for the manufacture of cosmetic, pharmaceutical, agro-food and industrial products using recycled PP (polypropylene) and PE (polyethylene). The rate of recycled material varies from 20% to 100%, depending on the application.

Enter the circular economy now and integrate recycled materials into your packaging products. We are at your disposal to assist with all your projects!

The Plastuni Lisses factory has been awarded the Flexostar Gold Medal prize for 2017, for its work on the laminated “Body Shop Hand Cream” tube, which was picked out by the French Technical Association for Flexographic Printing (Association Technique Française de Flexographie; ATF-Flexo) within the category covering Complex Film printing using UV inks.

Somater’s expertise in the field of the decoration of packaging, using flexographic techniques, has provided The Body Shop, with the results they were hoping for, both in terms of technical aspects and aesthetic appearance; the ability to reproduce the process; the aluminium colouring and the fidelity to the original design documentation.
