AptarGroup, Inc: Recyclable silicone valve
The Swimming Silicone® valve from Aptar Food + Beverage is an FDA-approved, recycle-friendly valve for the food and beverage markets.
The valve features an active ingredient that gives the valve a different density from PET, allowing it to float as PET sinks in recycling tanks. The ability to easily separate silicone from PET simplifies and streamlines the PET recycling process. The Swimming Silicone valve delivers the same performance as the company’s standard SimpliSqueeze® and SimpliDrink™ valved closures: flow control and a no-mess dispensing system.
