rPET100 - The Game Changer in Packaging

VISCONEWS ISSUE #16 ·

Designed for recycling. Made from recycled material.

We have developed a new material to make packaging for dairy and hotfill products fully recyclable: rPET100 combines the environmental advantages of recycled PET with easy material processability and opens opportunities for new circular packaging solutions. Food packaging for applications like dairy, hot drinks, and ready-meals must withstand higher temperatures during the production process and consumption. Additionally, dairy products require packaging with optimal light and gas barrier for longer shelf life.

 

The new rPET100 sheet combines these benefits and adds new ones: it is heat resistant, made from monomaterial, and its white colour protects the product from UV light. Once used, the packaging can be 100% recycled because it contains no other polymer additives.

viscoSHEET lines are designed for the production of up to 100 % recycled PET

Truly circular packaging material

Trays, cups, and food containers made from rPET100 are the fully recyclable alternative to single-use cups made from materials like polypropylene (PP) or polystyrene (PS). Post-consumer recycled PET fulfils all requirements of the European Food Safety Agency (efsa) when it has been super-cleaned with Starlinger viscotec technology.

 

PET/rPET has outstanding material properties that can be restored in the recycling process, which makes PET a truly circular packaging material. Up to 100% recycling content is possible for rPET100, and the material has an unbeatable CO2 balance because recycled PET has a considerably smaller CO2 footprint.

New markets and new applications are served, thanks to the unique properties of the rPET100 material.
