The new low density Polyolefin sleeve from Clondalkin Group company Nyco improves recycling efficiency by making it possible to separate shrink sleeves from PET bottles or cups using an automated recycling process.

The new material features quality machinability, flatness, and high tensile strength. The material can be stored at room temperature, which is another distinct advantage over many more traditional sleeve materials. The polyolefin sleeve can be printed Rotogravure, UV Flexo, and UV Offset.
Because the material has a much lower density in comparison to PET, it makes the automated separation process very easy increasing recyclability and reducing waste to landfill.
