North Carolina-based Napco specializes in design and manufacturing of packaging for the entertainment industry. The company has developed a new product called ECOtray CD and DVD packaging made from 100% recycled pulp paper.
The company claims ECOtray is one of the most environmentally friendly packaging solutions available in its category it also provides excellent performance for disc retention and is compatible with some automated packaging systems.
The company says the ECOtray's FIBERlok hub is responsible for offering superior disc retention. The hub can also withstand collapsing or breaking and continuous use even in warm and humid climates.
Among the ECOtray's other attributes, the highly sophisticated fine pulp molding process used in manufacture provides the tray with an extra-smooth finish and consistent shape and form for optimized disc packaging automation. A specialized surface sealing process prevents paper fibers from lifting so that the discs remain clean and completely protected from any scratching or abrasion.
The tray is made primarily of a combination of post consumer paperboard along with some recycled corrugated box material, making the ECOtray the perfect combination of fully recycled materials balanced to offer the right amount of rigidity with enough flexibility to provide solid overall performance.
