Bemis Company Inc. (bemis.com) recently launched its latest innovation, Encore ultra-clear recyclable film. The technology combines readily recyclable material with shelf-appealing transparency.
“CPGs can feel confident with Encore ultra-clear recyclable film; it can provide the clarity and transparency shoppers demand, and still run on most standard existing manufacturing equipment,” said John Wilson, market manager.
In comparison with prior offerings, the new technology provides the advantages of a standard stand-up pouch with the added benefit of improved recyclability. It can also incorporate convenience features, such as press-to-close zippers.
Encore ultra-clear recyclable film is made of polyethylene, which was designed to be recycled through existing How2Recycle store drop-offs. This technology offers benefits of low haze, good stiffness, and high gloss. The ultra-clear recyclable film is currently available across multiple markets, including dish detergent pods, pet food and treats, confection items and more.
