ENDURO Effect 245 Metal detectable
Tear-resistant, metal detectable paper. Ideal for loop-lock tags and hang tags in the food industry. Ensures reliable
identification and product traceability. The metal detectable inner layer provides reliable detection throughout processing thus preventing contamination.
ENDURO Effect 265 Metal Detectable is a hard-wearing composite material consisting of an aluminium-coated 59 µm PET film core and uncoated paper surfaces. The multi-layer product structure is robust, metal detectable, opaque, resistant to edge tearing, water impermeable and suitable for certain outdoor applications. It can be cut, punched, perforated, drilled, folded, glued and bound without issue.
High-quality paper surfaces offer optimized feed properties and printing results and can be printed with all common standard inks and coatings in offset and flexo printing. Suitable for variable thermal transfer printing. Runs through some laser printing systems, tests required in advance. With excellent drying and ink/toner adhesion. Can be stamped easily and marked manually.
Thanks to the multi-layer product structure ENDURO offers an affordable, eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to fully synthetic media. It is PVC-free and FSC®-certified.

For quality reasons ENDURO should be stored originally packed. Storage & converting conditions of 20±5°C and 50±10% rel. humidity are recommended.
Please inform us whenever intended use is linked to food contact.
It may be possible to provide a Declaration of Compliance confirming material suitability for your specific application.
According to our experience, the majority of the paper fibres (67% of the total composite) of ENDURO Effect 245 Metal detectable can be recovered in the paper recycling process. The film is separated and can be used for thermal energy recovery. When sorted using near-infrared sensors (NIR), however, this product is not identified as paper.
Therefore, it should be targeted for paper recycling as commercial waste. It is classified as “Mixed waste paper, grade 5.01” according to EN 643.
Smaller quantities can be disposed of together with household waste.
As conversion (i.e. printing) may significantly change the characteristics of a product, these recycling recommendations may only apply to ENDURO material before processing.
Originally packed under recommended storage conditions ENDURO rolls and sheets can be stored for at least 3 years.
