Mactac delivers sustainable materials with APR certification

L&NW talks to Christina Barajas about Mactac's commitment to the environment and how the company's various portfolios benefit customers.

Mactac's commitments to quality and sustainability have been evident in new product launches. Mactac has been granted Critical Guidance Recognition (CGR) from the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR), exceeding the association’s strictest criteria for product packaging recyclability.

Mactac earned the recognition for its polypropylene pressure sensitive label materials with a hot-melt adhesive for high-density polyethylene (HDPE) containers. During Critical Guidance testing, Mactac labels demonstrated compatibility with standard HDPE container recycling practices and remained in place without impacting the physical properties of the recycled HDPE pellets. With the accolade, Mactac becomes the first label manufacturer to receive CGR for a hot-melt adhesive.

L&NW talks to Christina Barajas, sustainability manager, Mactac North America, about her company's newest initiatives and the benefits to customers.
