Answers to your questions

Below we answer the current questions about compostable Repaq packaging.

Is there a minimum order quantity?

We can produce customized packaging for orders of 500 kg or more. Smaller quantities of Doypacks are available in our online store.

Which products can be packaged with Repaq?

Repaq is particularly suitable for sensitive food products with a high protection requirement. However, Repaq can be used for almost all product packaging.

Where is Repaq produced?

Repaq is produced in Germany and the neighboring European countries.

How long can I store Repaq films?

Repaq has an unlimited shelf life of years under normal storage conditions (room temperature and approx. 40-60% relative humidity). It is important to ensure that the foil is not exposed to direct sunlight and is not stored next to a heater.

Is there only one Repaq material?

No, we combine different Repaq foils depending on the area of application and the associated requirements. Our materials consist mainly of cellulose and are supplemented with starch-based materials. All materials are certified compostable and plastic free.

Can I order samples?

Yes, after an inquiry via our form we will be happy to put together an individual sample shipment for your product. Depending on the size of the sample shipment, we charge a flat rate for this.

How quickly does Repaq compost?

Repaq packaging composts in a natural environment within 42 to 180 days. The duration of the composting process depends on the thickness of the material and the environmental conditions. The warmer, moister and more bioactive the environment, the faster the material is assimilated.

What happens to Repaq in the sea?

Repaq also decomposes in the sea, but more slowly than on land. If it is eaten by animals, it decomposes in the stomach without any harmful substances.

Is Repaq printable?

Repaq is completely printable. We only use water-based, compostable printing inks that are matched to the surface of Repaq films. This also preserves the composting properties. We do not use metallic and neon colors due to their ecotoxicity.
