Placon: Eco-friendly Recyclable PET

Placon has introduced EcoStarT HS 1000, a PET-based, eco-friendly recyclable material that can be sealed with existing machinery and tooling.

Comparable in cost to PVC, the material carries an efficient resin identification code, offers good clarity, and is heat-sealable. Adhesive is said to seal more efficiently than other materials accommodating leading seal technologies, providing energy savings of 8-10% by reducing the duty cycle on RF machines, while also sealing to a variety of materials. It is also easy to wield and offers 100% fiber tear on blister-to-card seal and allows easy sealing on aqueous-based cards.
