Artcraft Label’s new line of recycle-friendly labels solve PETE clamshell recycling problem
Artcraft Label is committed to providing sustainable labelled packaging and is pleased to announce the launch of the ProPETE™ line of label products, which will be available October 1st 2015. ProPETE™ labels are built to perform in and not interfere with Clamshell PETE recycling.
In the past years, the demand for recycled PETE [RPETE] has been on a steady rise in Canada and the USA.
Unfortunately of the total amount of PETE collected, many reclaimers report 25% to 35% in bale yield losses due to contamination. Labels are a significant contributor to this contamination.
Artcraft Label designed 4 specific label constructions that overcome these issues.
Our ProPETE™ label constructions have been tested according with the APR Critical Issues Guidance for Innovations Protocol for Evaluating PETE Thermoform Labels and Adhesives for Compatibility with PETE Recycling.
All 4 constructions are now recognized as “Found Conforming to the Evaluation Protocol” as set by APR guidelines.
Not only are ProPETE™ labels a better solution for recyclability, they have additional advantages such as:
- The liner is PETE which is thinner and stronger liner compared to traditional paper liners. The Liner is also recyclable.
- We can obtain up to 30%+ more labels on a roll. The result is a reduction of production downtime on your equipment associated with label roll changeovers.
- Reduced shipping costs by having a lighter weight construction.
