Packaging products manufacturer Intertape Polymer Group (IPG) has launched ExlfilmPlus PCR, a new polyolefin shrink film incorporating 35% recycled content.
This design aligns with the increasing demand for eco-friendly packaging solutions that do not compromise on quality or performance.
Claimed to be IPG’s most sustainable polyolefin shrink film, ExlfilmPlus PCR features at least 10% certified post-consumer recycled (PCR) content and 25% certified post-industrial recycled (PIR) content.
The film utilises mechanically recycled post-consumer content, sourced from consumer plastic waste and recycled into new resin.
In addition, ExlfilmPlus PCR’s thinner gauges contribute to the reduction of material usage by up to 9%, further lessening its environmental impact.
The film is prequalified for store drop-off by How2Recycle, a standardised labelling system, and is also approved for certain direct food contact applications.

“It is the perfect choice for companies looking to meet their sustainability goals without sacrificing any of the coveted superior packaging traits associated with premier polyolefin shrink film.”
