KreCycle™

Recyclable bags & films

Krehalon’s KreCycle™ PE films are Polyethylene (PE) based materials suitable for mechanical recycling, without compromising on shelf life and sealing performance.

The development of these structures is based on CEFLEX Design for a Circular Economy (D4ACE) Guidelines where EVOH barrier in PO-based structures is advised as no more than 5% of total weight to enable recyclability. 

Features and benefits: 

  • Recycle-ready for mechanical recycling
  • Tailored barrier properties to suit application needs
  • Superior sealability & machinability
  • Printable for maximum visual appeal
  • Easy peel options for consumer convenience
  • High quality paper-feel print option offers a recyclable paper-look alternative to non-recyclable, hard-to-separate paper/plastic laminates 

All KreCycle™ PE materials have received certification for recyclability by Cyclos (Institute for Recyclability and Product Responsibility), achieving recyclability score of 94%.
