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)
