From food to technology, the use of stock clamshell packaging solutions is mainstream. While we discuss plastic-based stock clamshell packaging, environmental concerns do rise.

Companies have now started using sustainable alternatives while manufacturing these stock clamshell packaging solutions. Another factor that fuels the demand for stock clamshell packaging is how it helps in keeping production costs down. Stock clamshell packaging is majorly considered by the industry owners as it also saves the product’s life cycle and rigidity.

The more people adopt environment-friendly packaging solutions, look at the clamshell solution companies with recycled plastic solutions. This happens with the same plastic and different manufacturing processes. Producers use various processes to deliver different types of PET containers.

PET form clamshells using a process known as thermoforming, including bottles and jugs, through a process called blow moulding. PET is considered 100% recyclable with multiple grades. However, this process holds challenges, such as labels with strong adhesives. This is further added with fine particles when processed and has a different bulk density, restraining the sales of stock clamshell packaging solutions.

The specified clamshell for your product is produced by understanding the product dimensions. Many product manufacturers look for application-based clamshell packaging solutions, which becomes a challenge for the packaging manufacturer.

These challenges faced by recyclable stock clamshell packaging are solved through friction ion fit channels and a more tamper-resistant seal for safety. The sealing technology decreases the bulk density, which makes the packaging stronger and more rigid, providing products with the utmost security. This fuels the demand for stock clamshell packaging solutions.
