Recycable film

rPET Films on show as DuPont Teijin Films exhibit at Fruit Logistica 2019

| Sheets & Films | DuPont | Wilmington | United States

DuPont Teijin Films will be exhibiting again at the 2019 Fruit Logistica exhibition in Berlin from 6th-8th February and this year the focus is on the new Harvest Fresh rPET range of heat sealable polyester films with up to 50% post consumer recycled rPET content.

DuPont Teijin Films have worked closely with a world leading supplier of rPET polymer, sourcing the raw material solely from one-way bottle deposit return schemes from Germany, Sweden, Norway, Finland and Denmark.

The bottles are subjected to several stages of sorting and washing before going through the final patented URRC cleaning process. As well as proving a viable end use market for recycled polymer, the Mylar® Harvest Fresh rPET range also delivers a carbon footprint saving which has been estimated by third party audit to be approximately 1.4 kilograms less CO2 emissions for every kilogram of virgin material replaced by recycled content.

The Mylar® Harvest Fresh rPET range is available with the full range of DuPont Teijin Films' heat seal chemistries delivering all the benefits expected of Mylar® lidding films such as low temperature seals, class leading Anti-fog performance and the ability to seal to a wide range of material including rPET and pulp punnets.
