  • Polypropylene-based SBB is 100% recyclable in the polypropylene or polyolefin recycle stream. Profol has SBB compositions that can be separated for recycling using traditional water bath separation used for polyolefins.

Superior print durability

  • The polypropylene surface of SBB provides superior print durability vs. traditional L- boards. The polypropylene material does not absorb moisture or bacon grease which keeps the visual presentation crisp and vibrant.
  • SBB film can be pigmented any color on the bacon-contact side with white on the reverse side for easy printing of advertising graphics.

Allows High Pressure Processing (HPP) for other bacon types

  • Non-pork bacon products typically rely on HPP, which uses extremely high water pressure (up to 6,000 bar/87,000 psi) to neutralize pathogens in food. Profol SBB is the only bacon board material that can withstand this process.
  • HPP is a cold process that maintains the characteristics of the fresh food product. It doesn’t alter taste, texture or quality for consumers.
  • HPP has been shown to extend retail shelf life up to two or three times longer than traditional preservation methods.

Using an SQF certified supplier such as Profol provides benefits that are immeasurable in today’s environment.
