Using Wash-Away Labels is particularly important for ensuring that PET products are recyclable.
Demand for clean recycled PET for packaging is increasing.
PET is a clear, strong, lightweight plastic generally used for food, beverage, home, and personal care packaging. PET can easily be identified by the #1 in the triangular “chasing arrows” code, which is usually found molded into the bottom or side of the container.
Many brands that use PET for packaging have targets of reaching 100% recyclability by 2025. While PET is fully recyclable, incompatible label materials and adhesives affect the recycling process and contaminate the recycling stream, thus making it difficult for companies to meet their goals. Incompatible label materials and adhesives impact the recycling process and contaminate the recycling stream. Wash-Away Labels from Adcraft Labels are the way forward in maximizing the recyclability of PET recycling.
