TOPAS® COC for Sustainable Shrink Sleeves: Plastics Technology article

We are pleased to see the recycling advantages of TOPAS COC in shrink sleeve labeling of PET containers featured in a Plastics Technology article. While older solutions create PET contamination issues, the use of TOPAS COC enables shrink labels to cleanly separate from PET flake in all material recovery facilities, with no new equipment or processing changes required. It's truly a drop-in fix to a growing environmental problem, with commercial films available from multiple suppliers. Article link. Image courtesy of Taghleef Industries.
