90% Post-Consumer Recycled BOPET has much more significant advantages – Sihl

As a feature of the ESG approach, Sihl persists in leading the way in FACESTOCK, making products and solutions that create the best potential use of available resources.

As a leading source, Sihl is introducing the first inkjet film based on 90% Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) Bi-axially Oriented PET at the end of April! 

Sihl as a pioneer in sustainability: First inkjet film based on 90 % PCR

It presents similar product uses to its non-PCR counterpart and is ideally worked for razor-sharp product labels in print on request. In addition to the resource-saving grades with less weight, this is another step towards a “green” variety.

7054 PICOFILM CPr-50 gloss IHG1 is a transparent FACESTOCK film for the production of product labels. The upside has a glossy layer for varying information printing with a water-based inkjet appropriate for dye and pigment inks. The development has the same mechanical properties, so it is effortless to process, just like the non-PCR grades (7858/7852), while delivering similar benefits: fast drying, high color brilliance, sharp-edged prints, and good quality water resistance. The total weight of this film has also been lessened: This represents more labels per roll and thus more increased productivity.

Sihl FACESTOCK coatings merged with print-on-demand printing technology make it more comfortable and more reasonable to have precisely the amount of labels needed while meeting customers’ personalization needs. It decreases waste and CO2 emissions significantly.
