Fibre-Lok by Kwik Lok is an environmentally-friendly alternative to plastic bag closure for the food industry.

Composed of cotton fibres and cellulose wood, Fibre-Lok assures the same reliability as the traditional plastic closures, but complies with European sustainability standards for plastic reduction and home compostability.

Fibre-Lok is 0.70 mm thick but has the strength of other Kwik Lok closures. Its wood pulp supply comes from certified suppliers and renewable sources – Forest Stewardship Council (FSC). This certification proves that products come from responsibly managed forests that provide social, economic, and environmental benefits.

Fibre-Lok is home compostable, unlike other solutions that are only compostable in industrial settings. It meets or exceeds all known environmental and health regulations, such as REACH, RoHS, and CA Prop 65. It can be utilized in almost all Kwik Lok’s automatic bag closing machines without modifications. It only requires slight modifications while utilizing it in 086 machines.
