APET cycle films. Sustainable packaging solutions from RETAL Baltic Films are moving forward with our new APET cycle, produced of 25% or 30% chemically recycled resin (NEOPET CYCLE). Developed in collaboration with NEO GROUP, APET cycle films are offering excellent transparency and a gloss finish just like virgin PET film.
APET (Amorphous Polyethylene Terephthalate) cycle films are a type of plastic film material made from PET resin. These films are designed for specific applications where properties like clarity, strength, and heat resistance are required. “Cycle films” usually refers to films that are designed for a recycling cycle, meaning they can be reused or recycled after their initial use. Here’s more information about APET cycle films and their common uses:
1. Clarity: APET is known for its excellent optical clarity. It provides a clear, transparent view of the products or items it covers, making it suitable for packaging where visibility of the contents is essential. This clarity makes it a popular choice for packaging items like food, electronics, and consumer goods.
2. Strength and Durability: APET films are strong and have good impact resistance. This strength makes them suitable for applications where the packaging needs to protect the contents from damage during transportation and handling.
3. Heat Resistance: APET films can withstand moderate heat, which is important in applications where the film might be exposed to heat during sealing or other processes.
4. Recyclability: APET is a recyclable material. This is where the term “cycle films” comes into play. After their initial use, APET cycle films can be collected, processed, and recycled into new products or films, contributing to sustainability efforts.
APET cycle films are used in a variety of applications, including:
In summary, APET cycle films are a type of plastic film known for their clarity, strength, and heat resistance. They find applications in a wide range of industries, especially where visibility of the packaged product and recyclability are important considerations.
