Labels, inks and adhesives are all sources of contamination in the recycling process. That’s why we’ve taken the initiative to develop next-gen technologies that vastly improve package recyclability and promote conservation of resources.
PET is one of the most widely recyclable plastics, but components attached to these containers are seen as contaminates. We have worked diligently to provide best-in-class label materials that enable the ultimate recyclability of PET by ensuring our materials, adhesives, and inks are compatible in the recycling process. Our solutions for PET meet the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) Design Guide.
Our solutions for HDPE meet the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) Design Guide. These labels are compatible with the current recycling system, allowing for correct sortation and enabling HDPE circularity. Most importantly, they allow your labels to make a strong impression and make a difference.
Liner is a byproduct of pressure sensitive label application, made primarily of paper or PET. Today, the majority of liner is landfilled in North America. However, we are working to flip the script by participating in cross-industry collaborative efforts with TLMI and CELAB. Through these efforts, we are seeking to increase recycling rates for liner.
