Reimagining Unreel Packaging for Enhanced Sustainability
Unreel packaging has been in use by Belden for more than 40 years and has served the industry well in terms of portability and ease of use. Unreel consists of a coil of wire or cable that is wound using patented Reelex technology. The cable is then placed into a cardboard box and smoothly dispensed from the center of the coil via a tube for easy access. Until now, that tube (called a “payout tube”) was made of plastic. Today, through the work of Belden packaging engineers, a new tube design, made with recycled paper pulp, is being implemented to replace the plastic component. This allows the entire package to be placed in the paper recycling stream!
The shift towards a fully paper-based, recyclable generation of Unreel packaging is important, as there is a great deal of evidence pointing to plastic’s harm on the environment. Everything from single-use plastic water bottles and grocery bags to food containers and packaging is finding its way to our oceans and piling up in landfills. Excessive use of plastic simply isn’t sustainable for the planet. Therefore, it’s important that we all do our part to reduce our use of plastic. Eliminating the plastic components in Unreel packaging is just one way that Belden can be part of the solution.
