Portabio™️ laminate

Portabio™ offers all the packaging enhancement benefits of a standard metallised polyester film laminate, whilst using a more sustainable source of filmic material and providing for recyclability/bio-degradability of packaging waste.

Portabio™ uses a cellulose based film originating from timber sourced from FSC accredited forests and has been tested and approved for home and industrial composting to DIN Certo standard EN13432.

API holds the global exclusive licence for the use of Portabio film in packaging laminates.

Portabio™ is coated with API’s proprietry NC lacquer and, in line with standard API film laminates, is suitable for all commonly used printing technologies and is receptive to embossing and foil stamping.
