Ice Cream Cones

Ice Cream Cones

A recyclable wrapping solution for individually packaged ice cream products in cones

Our metallized paper for individually packaged ice cream cones is designed with all players in the supply chain in mind. It is developed so that it performs optimally on printing and converting machinery.

The properties of our papers ensure that as much dusting as possible is avoided. Likewise, we can prove our product’s resistance against sustaining tear damage in the fast-moving converting process.

Flatness and optimal base paper thickness and composition in particular have been carefully considered to ensure the converting process runs smoothly and that it is optimized for converting machinery such as knives. Glue glue performance and crimping capabilities are also excellent.

And because individually wrapped ice cream cones and ice lolly wrappings often require heavy ink coverage, we have ensured that our papers are ideal for printers - they are optimised for both a variety of inks and all contemporary printing machinery.

AR Metallizing’s paper for ice cream cones is eco-friendly. Our papers are recyclable monomaterials which can present similar benefits as traditional multilayer materials to direct contact food packaging. Our products are available globally and are compliant with European and FDA rules.
