Roberts Polypro Announces Rollout of Biodegradable Can Rings at Craft Brewers Conference 2023

Apr 17, 2023

CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 17, 2023 – Roberts PolyPro, a ProMach product brand, is pleased to announce its LDPE can rings, Grip-Pak™, are now biodegradable certified and will be rolled out at the upcoming Craft Brewers Conference, taking place in Nashville, TN from May 7-10. Visitors to the Roberts PolyPro booth (#433) will have the opportunity to see the new carriers on display, learn more about the biodegradable certification, and experience live demos of the can handle applicators.

The LDPE can carrier product line, Grip-Pak, is now certified as biodegradable, following independent testing conducted by a leading agency. The testing was conducted in controlled laboratory conditions that mimic an urban landfill environment for biodegradation of plastic products. Over the course of 28 weeks, the scientific test revealed that Grip-Pak carriers biodegraded in their entirety (100%) without the presence of false-positives or false-negatives. As a result, Roberts PolyPro received a product performance certification indicating that their LDPE Grip-Pak™ handles are biodegradable.

“We are committed to reducing the environmental impact of our products, and Grip-Pak’s biodegradable certification is an important step forward in that effort,” said Roy Tetreault, Vice President and General Manager of Roberts PolyPro. “We have extensively tested the performance of the biodegradable Grip-Pak carriers, including stressors encountered during transportation and handling, and we are confident that they offer the same durable and effective market-tested performance our customers have come to expect.”

In addition to the biodegradable LDPE can handles, Roberts PolyPro will also be showcasing their 100% recyclable HDPE can carriers, Craft-Pak™, and inline applicators at Craft Brewers Conference.

Craft Brewers Conference attendees are encouraged to visit Roberts PolyPro in Booth 433 to learn more about their multipack can carrier solutions. For more information about Roberts PolyPro, please visit their website at
