New Nyco Polyolefin sleeve improves recycling

June 4, 2013

The new low-density Polyolefin sleeve now makes it possible to separate shrink sleeves from PET bottles.

Clondalkin Group company Nyco has launched a low-density Polyolefin sleeve which the company says vastly improves recycling efficiency. The new low-density Polyolefin sleeve now makes it possible to separate shrink sleeves from PET bottles or cups by automated recycling processes.

The newly introduced material has excellent 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. As with all of the products available from Nyco, the polyolefin sleeve can be printed Rotogravure, UV Flexo  and UV Offset. Nyco developed the sleeve in response to market demands for recyclable packaging.

Nyco Sales and Marketing Manager Sander Kool says, “We are very pleased to be able to offer this new product to the market. One of the main challenges in packaging today is to improve recyclability. This product is a great step forward. The material has a much lower density in comparison to PET which makes the automated separation process very easy thus increases recyclability and reduces waste to landfill.”
