Pregis has launched Astro-Bubble® Renew™, an economy air cushioning grade that contains 25% preconsumer recycled content.
A suitable alternative for economy bubble users who want environmental benefits coupled with a less volatile pricing structure, the product’s grade will usually have a silvery tone, but other subtle shades may occur based on the colorants present in the regrinds of each specific batch. Available in coex (LDPE/nylon) and monolayer (LLDPE) options with bubble sizes consisting of very small, small, medium, and large. Bubble dias range from 1⁄8 to 1⁄2 in. Because 25% regrind is used, the decreased independence on 100% virgin resin smoothes out spikes in cost, which allows more consistent pricing for Pregis customers.
