Mondi and beck packautomaten launch FunctionalBarrier Paper solution dedicated to automated eCommerce packaging
The FunctionalBarrier Paper from Mondi is 95% paper and features enhanced barrier properties to guarantee premium product protection against water vapour and moisture. The paper is made with a higher strength, enabling it to carry heavier items without breakage. It is responsibly sourced, made of renewable materials and recyclable in existing recycling streams throughout Europe. This is essential for many products being shipped, including clothing, electronic goods, premium goods or heavier objects where existing paper solutions are not sufficient.
The solution uses 95% paper and is recyclable across all European paper waste streams.

Beck Packautomaten is an innovative packaging machinery developer based in Germany with thousands of installs around the world – they have partnered with Mondi, a global leader in sustainable packaging & paper to create a novel solution for eCommerce businesses.
The partnership aims to revolutionise eCommerce markets and consumer expectations by replacing plastic packaging and creating right-sized packaging for a wide range of products.
The eCommerce market has grown significantly in recent years, accounting for approximately 20% of global retail sales in 2021. This means a wider variety of goods is being distributed, requiring packaging of different sizes, shapes and strengths. Mondi’s annual consumer trend research showed that online retailers are actively seeking packaging solutions that are practical, ensure optimal protection of the goods, and are sustainable – 82% of customers prefer eCommerce packaging that is recyclable.
Beck’s automated packing machine ensures that products of different sizes are packed according to their requirements. The machine measures the packed goods and calculates the paper needed, reducing excess usage of the material and thereby minimising waste and costs. Stable sealing of Mondi’s paper on all four sides of the packaging ensures that it meets logistics requirements and protects goods in transit – as successfully proven during tests in Mondi’s ISTA certified lab in its Bupak plant.
