Nature MultiPack™ adhesives have been adapted to the PET bottle and can surface such that they bond the Nature MultiPack™ together with small, accurately placed dots, enabling the pack to be formed quickly, and then conveyed, palletized, stretch-wrapped, and also survive the logistics circuit, including hundreds of kilometers with wide temperature variations. The consumer needs to be able to carry the Nature MultiPack™ from the shelf in the store all the way home to the cupboard, and then the pack must be easy to open for all users.

Nature MultiPack™ brings clear sustainability message based on less packaging. Bottles and cans are individually oriented within the Nature MultiPack™ application equipment, enabling bar code masking and billboard presentations across the packs. A convenient tape handle is applied downstream, adding marketing messages, pack strength and consumer convenience.

For a large PET bottle 2x3 pack or equivalent can pack, the Nature MultiPack™ is in the same cost range as printed film shrink packs.

The initial focus of Nature MultiPack™ was on PET bottles but is now also available for cans. The container-to-container connection points have sufficient structure for pressing them together during the bonding process. Other applications like glass bottles have been considered but are not ready for market at this time.
