Coffee Capsule Lids

Coffee Capsule Lids

Creating fully recyclable coffee capsules and pods is a priority for coffee brands. To facilitate capsule reprocessing, coffee capsules need to be made from a single material. AR Metallizing offers an alternative to multi-material coffee capsules made from polypropylene and aluminum.

Using our polypropylene lids, brands achieve recyclable, mono-polymer coffee capsules.

  • Coffee capsules

AR Metallizing are proud to present metallized and transparent polypropylene lid for coffee capsules. Our solution offers brands the possibility to shift to a fully mono-polymer coffee pod, rather than using multi-material components.

Developed especially for capsule applications, our films offer the necessary barrier properties to protect delicate coffee aromas and protect against water and oxygen penetration before use. Our films allow for ultrasonic sealing mechanisms.

Our metallized films are printable for additional branding exposure. We also offer a transparent polypropylene film for brands that wish to differentiate their capsules or allow consumers to view the coffee.

Using our polypropylene lids, brands achieve recyclable, mono-polymer coffee capsules.

Touched by millions of consumers. Every day.

We think global, but act local.
