Multi-Plastics Launches New 100% Recyclable PET Shrink Films
Multi-Plastics is validating its commitment to the environment with the release of its EnviroCycle 4200 Series shrink films. This innovative line of 100% recyclable PET shrink films allows printed sleeves to recycle with the bottle, keeping plastics out of the landfill and providing the environmental stewardship brand owners require.
APR President, Steve Alexander, stated, “The Association of Plastic Recyclers is pleased to recognize Multi-Plastics Inc.’s EnviroCycle 4200 Series copolyester heat shrinkable film substrate as meeting or exceeding APR’s PET-CG-02, Critical Guidance Protocol for Clear PET Articles with Labels and Closures, most strict requirements and hereby so states. This APR recognition is based on the technical recyclability of the label substrate innovation with PET bottles.”
The Critical Guidance Protocol for Clear PET Articles with Labels and Closures is the product of multi-industry consensus of key issues related to the recycling of postconsumer PET bottles. The Protocol directs innovators to conduct specific testing per established testing procedures and then provides the innovator with guidance to interpret the results. The APR recognition is based on the innovation meeting or exceeding the most challenging test conditions and strictest guidance criteria.
Alexander went on to say, “APR thanks Multi-Plastics for its cooperation in using this important protocol. The protocol is intended to improve the quality of recycled bottles by helping innovators to make informed decisions about the consequences of PET bottle innovations. The impact of this protocol is world-wide.”
Multi-Plastics, Inc. Vice President, David Parsio, added, “We are further displaying our commitment to full-cycle sustainability through environmental responsibility with the EnviroCycle film line. This is just one of the many innovations from Multi-Plastics in our efforts to create more value for our customers, provide industry-leading film solutions, and keep plastics out of our oceans and landfills.”
