Recycled Pet

Recycled Pet

Industrial & Outdoor

With over 500bn plastic drinking bottles sold worldwide (with this figure expected to increase) and then around half the bottles bought are then recycled.* We needed to come up with an idea to do our bit for our planet Earth.

The development of our award winning KP5000 labelstock is a direct result of our commitment to seek to reduce our footprint on the environment. So by researching new innovative ways we have been able to use 80% recycled PET as the raw material for this labelstock. Furthermore, the manufacturing of this labelstock consumes less fossil fuel and produces 24% lower CO2 emissions than alternative approaches.

These labelstock offers the equivalent transparency and conversion properties as conventional non-recycled PET film and is suitable for POP and general labelling applications, so we have been able to not only look after out environmental responsibilities but we have not compromised on quality.

THE PROCESS

A mechanical recycling process converts the plastic bottles into high quality, sanitary recycled PET resin. The bottles are crushed and washed, after which a high temperature processing vaporises and restores the resin’s molecular weight to a level suitable for bottle moulding.

The approach produces better quality results than traditional material or chemical recycling processes and can be printed using all conventional print methods.
