CleanFlake PET Plastic Recycling-Infographic

A solution for PET Plastic Recycling

Developed to advance the recycling of polyethylene terephthalate (PET) containers, Avery Dennison’s CleanFlake portfolio features a water-based, recyclable adhesive, which cleanly separates during the PET Plastic recycling process. The adhesive adheres to the PET bottle until the very end of its lifecycle, when the cohesive bond is broken at the recycler in the sink/float process. This allows the facestock and adhesive to cleanly separate from the PET flake resulting in pure PET flakes, the conservation of virgin PET resources, and less landfill waste. Available in clear or white BOPP film facestocks and now a 54# semi-gloss paper, CleanFlake is the first complete solution to address PET plastic recycling.
