Thanks to our space-saving solutions, it is possible to secure even small containers with a reusable seal. By dispensing with disposable seals, large quantities of plastic can be saved every year. And therefore also plastic waste and CO2.
Seals made from recycled plastics
As an alternative to reusable seals, there is also the possibility to use seals made of recycled raw materials. The use of post-industrial recycled plastics actively contributes towards reducing the consumption of fossil raw materials. Post-industrial material refers to plastic that is obtained from production waste. By using this material, the accruing plastic waste can be returned to the production cycle and therefore used sensibly.
Seals made of bio-based plastics
Another possibility to reduce the consumption of non-renewable raw materials is the use of bio-based plastics. With bio-based plastics, plastic granulate is produced from renewable raw materials, which can be processed in the existing facilities.
Seals made of unplasticised polyamide
One project that is particularly close to Unisto's heart is our unplasticised polyamide. Plasticisers, also known as phthalates, can be hazardous to health in the event of prolonged contact. We have therefore developed a polyamide together with our plastics supplier that meets all of our requirements without the need for plasticisers. As a result of this, we are protecting our employees and our customers. This also means Unisto is the first manufacturer of security seals to bring a solution to the market that work without plasticisers.
Cardboard boxes made from recycled material
Resources can be saved by using recycled cardboard for the production of our packaging. And this cycle never ends, because you make an active contribution towards the Unisto green footprint philosophy by disposing of the packaging correctly after use.
