Plastics reclaimer and film manufacturer Revolution has released a stretch film made with 10% post-consumer resin.
Revolution announced the release of its Encore Wrap, which recently received certification from Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) Global Services. Revolution says it’s the only stretch film on the market that’s certified to contain PCR.
The film, which is targeted at customers in warehousing, transportation and other commercial sectors, incorporates Revolution’s Encore PCR, which has a light blue tint when it’s on a roll but appears clear when the polyethylene is wrapped around a pallet.
Based in Little Rock, Ark., Revolution recycles films from various sources, including agricultural and commercial suppliers. According to a press release, the PCR used in the stretch wrap is sourced from used film from distributor clients.
Revolution already has multiple recycled plastics that are certified to contain post-consumer content and are recognized by the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) PCR Certification Program. (APR owns Plastics Recycling Update.)
