InCycle sheets are made from recycled PET, which is then expanded using MicroGREEN’s patented Ad-air® technology to reduce the amount of plastic required and significantly lower the environmental footprint of products made from them.  For example, the amount of source material recycled from one 20-oz. PET beverage bottle can produce seven 12-oz. hot beverage cups made from InCycle.  The sheets can help Consumer Packaged Goods (CPG) companies increase their environmental scorecard rating for their packaging and enhance their brand’s sustainability position by reducing the amount of their packaging waste.  The sheets also improve recycled PET’s functionality in terms of useful temperature range, insulation, flexibility and impact strength, making this increasingly prolific recycled material available to a broader range of applications. Available in a variety of gauges, from 0.022 - 0.060 in.
