Polyolefin-based solutions are accepted as one of the most promising alternatives to meet future recyclability requirements.

What makes polyolefins attractive for recycling is that they have low densities — allowing them to float in water — and excellent chemical resistance that is very important for mechanical recycling.

During the recycling process polyolefins keep their mechanical, functional and barrier properties intact. This is a big advantage for polyolefins and allows them to be reused.

Polyethylene and polypropylene are part of the polyolefin family.

We have the following polyolefin-based films that are recyclable (* where available):

  • Clear lidding
  • Flow wrapping
  • Forming and non-forming
  • High barrier shrink drum
  • Modified atmosphere packaging (MAP)
  • Multi-peel (reclosable)
  • Peelable
