HOUSTON, Nov 01, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – Polytex Fibers, one of the largest suppliers of premium pet food and consumer packaging in North America, launches a full line of films and of commercially available single-material bags.
The PurE product family is a range of 100% polyethylene (PE) films and bags that are 100% recyclable and retain all of the performance benefits that customers expect from multi-structure laminated films and bags.
PurE products build on a decade of product development and the first such extrusion capability in the United States, to create an oriented PE film with properties equivalent to traditional PET films. What is different with PurE is what is no different:
PurE films achieve 30% less haze than traditional PE films, allowing clear reverse printing with seamless lamination; PurE films have up to 90% less elongation than traditional PE films, which are similar to PET laminates to allow fast filling speeds on packaging lines; PurE films can achieve high melt index to create strong joints without sticking or melting during converting and filling; PurE films are up to 300% stiffer than traditional PE films, allowing packages to stand upright on the shelf; PurE films can incorporate barriers to high oxygen and humidity Properties; AndPurE films can incorporate up to 50% PCR and are compatible with our existing closed loop recycling programs.
