Recyclable Plastic Films

 

Polyethylene is a recyclable material. However, once laminated with certain other substrates, it can no longer be recycled. We have therefore created a new line of films made from 100% polyethylene, which makes it a fully recyclable structure.

These films are rapidly gaining popularity as they help our customers and end users achieve their sustainability goals without compromising the performance and appearance of packaging. It is a solution for lamination, or stand-up pouch making, whether for food (FDA) or non-food use.

Benefits

  • Converts on standard equipment
  • Moisture barrier (MVTR)
  • FDA grades available
  • Qualifies for drop-off store programs such as How2Recycle┬«
  • Good stiffness
  • Multiple uses

Films Made with Recycled Materials

 

Make your packaging more eco-responsible by integrating post-consumer (PCR) or post-industrial (PIR) resins without compromising on their functionality, printability, sturdiness or durability.

PCR resins are produced through various film and packaging recycling processes. They allow packaging to be diverted from landfill sites and help reduce plastics found in our waterways.

Several countries such as Canada or members of the European Union (EU) have adopted laws requiring manufacturers to include a defined percentage of PCR material in their packaging by 2025 and 2030. This will have a strong impact on demand in the coming years.

PCR resins can be used in the manufacturing of many types of packaging while retaining their critical properties. Thanks to our coextrusion films, we can offer films with PCR content for the manufacturing of stand-up pouches (SUP), pillow pouches, heavy-duty bags and more.

PIRs come from leftover films or unused bags that are transformed into granules and then extruded specifically for the production of films with recycled content.

These plastic films can be used in the manufacturing of retail and commercial bags, mail envelopes, compression bags, bundling films, heavy-duty carrier bags and more. The recycled content can be tailored to suit your needs, whether for food (FDA) or non-food use.

Benefits

  • Fully recyclable
  • Conversion on standard equipment
  • Color and tint options
  • Customizable recycled material content level
  • Performance equivalent to products made with virgin resin
  • FDA grades available

heavy duty bag films ecoresponsables
Films with reduced thickness

 

Available in several options such as heavy-duty carrier bags as well as multi-wall paper bags, reduced-thickness films are a high-performance, ecological and economical option. By reducing the thickness of the films, it saves money in several ways! You save on material, processing time and transport.

In addition, greenhouse gas emissions are reduced at all stages of the film’s life cycle; transport of raw materials, manufacturing, conversion, transport of finished products and recovery. The environmental impact of thinner gauge films is considerably less than that of conventional films.

Benefits

  • Faster sealing and processing
  • Cost reduction
  • Decrease in the amount of plastic used
  • Matte or glossy finish
  • Color and tint options
  • FDA grades available
