Sabert Corporation recently announced the launch of the new Pulp Plus and Pulp Max proprietary molded fiber blends without the intentional inclusion of added per- and polyfluoralkyl substances (PFAS).

As part of its commitment to eliminating all intentionally PFAS from its product portfolio by the end of 2023, Sabert’s new pulp formulations are designed to assist customers in achieving their sustainability goals. The molded fiber blends utilize fibers embedded with non-fluorine-based additives to enhance product performance and are tested for use with a wide variety of today’s most popular food applications.

Pulp Plus and Pulp Max additives were developed by Sabert’s Center for Innovation, the company’s dedicated team focused on developing proprietary technology and product formulations to service the food and beverage markets. The new molded fiber material blends are now part of Sabert’s broad line of food packaging solutions without the use of intentionally added PFAS.

Pulp Plus and Pulp Max comply with BPI guidelines for compostability and are approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as safe for food contact.

Pulp Plus has been developed with improved moisture resistance, eliminating “soggy” bottoms that can come with warm and moisture-rich foods, such as soup, burrito bowls, tacos, and pasta dishes. Suited for grab n’ go applications, Pulp Plus can extend the shelf life in refrigeration for 4-7 days. The formula also pairs well with oil-absorbing greens, grains, and starches.

Pulp Max is Sabert’s premium molded fiber blend with enhanced resistance to moisture permeation, oil, and grease. Ideal for hot, cold, and oily meals for takeout and delivery, Pulp Max performs effectively against fried foods and meat-based proteins like fried chicken, cheeseburgers, and french fries.

The Pulp Plus and Pulp Max formulations are available in a variety of Sabert product options and sizes, including round, square, and oval bowls, as well as rectangle and square containers, with the continuous expansion of additional solutions.
