Traditionally, release liners have been unrecyclable because they are coated in large amounts of silicone. However, after many years of research and development, Labelcraft has overcome this issue. The Recyclable EnviroLiner is made of 100% recycled paper and allows converters to use standard presses and customers to use their standard printers.
The Recyclable EnviroLiner is a testament to Labelcraft’s total commitment to sustainability and environmental preservation. The company says, "While the label industry has traditionally not been a leader in sustainability, the Recyclable EnviroLiner is a critical turning point. In North America it is estimated that nearly 1,200,000 tons of liners are dumped into landfills annually. The Recyclable EnviroLiner is the first product that will allow suppliers and customers to work towards 100% landfill free facilities."
