SK Chemicals has officially received APR Critical Guidance Recognition (ACGR) for five of its recyclable materials from the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) in the US.

The materials include Claro100, Claro100-CR50, ECOTRIA R102, ECOTRIA R200, and SKYPET CR BL.

According to SK chemicals, the products have been verified to possess polyethylene terephthalates (PET) properties that make them recyclable alongside commonly used water bottles. Some of the properties are viscosity, injection mouldability, and glass transition temperature.

Claro100, Claro100-CR50, ECOTRIA R102, and ECOTRIA R200 features excellent transparency and chemical resistance and are primarily used in the production of cosmetic containers.

The SKYPET CR BL meets the food contact standards of the FDA and is being used by South Korean bottled water brand, Samdasoo.

The company expects this recognition to expand sales of its recyclable materials globally.
