Ice Cream Cones

A recyclable, premium look wrapping solution for ice cream cone products 

Our metallized paper for ice cream cones is designed to satisfy the needs of all players in the supply chain.

  • Ice cream cones
  • Cornets

We have specially formulated our papers for ice cream cone wrapping to deliver optimal results for printers and converters. We have specially developed our papers to ensure they can be crimped shut and the crimping capabilities are excellent. The flatness, base paper thickness and composition of our papers have been carefully considered to ensure the converting process runs smoothly on converting machinery, and that it is optimized for converting machinery such as knives.

We can prove our product’s resistance against sustaining tear damage in the fast-moving converting process, and the properties of our papers ensure that as much dusting as possible is avoided. Glue glue performance and crimping capabilities are also excellent.

Because ice cream cones 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, while still retaining the shiny, glossy looks preferred by consumers.
