Post consumer grade PET film with clarity, processability of 100% virgin material

09-Dec-08
US-headquartered INVISTA, one of the world's leading integrated polymer and fibers producers, has formulated PERFORMA™-R, a rigid PET film and sheet containing up to 25% post consumer recycled content and features color, clarity, and processability that is equivalent to 100% virgin material. This rigid PET film features Polyclear® Conserve™ PET, a polyester polymer that contains up to 25% post-consumer recycled PET that utilizes bottle-grade, post-consumer recycled PET flake and reduces it back to its pre-polymer feedstock. It is then repolymerized so it processes like a virgin PET polymer. The company maintains that INVISTA's PERFORMA™-R PET films and sheets possess extremely high-clarity and brittleness properties similar to virgin APET Sheet. Available in cut sheets and custom rolls, it is suitable for usage in thermoformed container as well as printing and folding carton applications. This material can be reclaimed in available PET recycling chains and PET polymer can be reprocessed into the post-consumer recycling stream multiple times.
