rPE – Label material made of 100% recycled PE (without TiO2)

Submitted by: Schäfer-Etiketten GmbH & Co. KG
rPE – Label material made of 100% recycled PE (without TiO2)

Schäfer Etiketten has developed, in cooperation with Herma and Polifilm, a PE adhesive label consisting of 50% post-consumer and 50% post-industrial waste. On closer inspection, the white film contains small specks that are created during the recycling process. However, these give the material an authentic character.
The labels can be printed using standard printing processes (screen, flexo, offset and digital printing as well as hot foil stamping).

Possible areas of application include the cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries. Using recycled PE, especially from post-consumer waste, means this product is compatible with a recycling management approach.
