Our Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) PET Roll helps you fulfil your 2025 packaging targets for PCR content, at the same time as maintaining food grade standards.
Sandwiched between two thin layers of virgin PET, the PCR content of the product is between 60-80% of the total film (well above the 2025 targets) giving the PET a much more circular life cycle than 100% virgin plastic.

Domestic Plastic Recycling
This product is suitable for domestic plastic recycling in your kerbside bin. Please use the Australasian Recycling Label (ARL) to promote correct disposal.
Food waste is a preventable problem, starting in the supply chain. Caspak packaging solutions are custom designed to extend the shelf life of your products, which is good for you and the planet.
Our products, including recyclable options, are customised to integrate with your existing equipment minimising your costs and maximising your production.
Our experienced production team and product experts combine their knowledge with our state-of-the-art lab to ensure all our products meet the highest quality, both in presentation and performance.
Our PCR PET Roll was designed to perform as close to a virgin PET and thermoforming films product as possible, so there will be no change in terms of your processing or machinery, when running a standard thermoformer. You will need to make a modification from flexible cutting to rigid cutting (anvil and long cut blades).
With high and medium barrier options, it will maintain the shelf life of the product to the same high levels of existing virgin material options.
With the current processing systems and availability of PCR PET, this is a premium product. However, with its ability to help you exceed your 2025 packaging targets, and the move towards ensuring PCR becomes the norm, the advantages and benefits will be clear over time, not just in terms of your own sustainability goals but in helping to reduce overall plastic waste.
A film made from post consumer recycled plastic that can also be recycled domestically
If mono PET, the film can be disposed of through domestic plastic recycling. This will ensure it is processed through PET recycling and flaking in Australia to be repurposed into bottles and other consumer items. If it is laminated with PE, proper disposal is in the standard waste bin. The PCR content of the product ensures that you are taking a more sustainable approach to your packaging. The product will increase the circular economy via the pull through of recycled plastic which is so important to the economic viability of recycling.
