PlastiVerd UNIQUE A25
PLASTIVERD UNIQUE A25 combines both post-consumer recycled PET and virgin PET resin in every single pellet. The virgin resin base is our PLASTIVERD AQUA, yet made using 25% clean recycled PET material as feedstock. It makes it possible to replace conventional non-renewable petrochemical raw materials, saving natural resources and reducing environmental impact. PLASTIVERD UNIQUE A25 is suitable for processing by stretch blow moulding in one and particularly two stage processes. Its formulation has been specially developed for the packaging of still or lightly carbonated water. It has the required mechanical strength, colour, transparency and excellent organoleptic properties that this kind of packaging demands.
PLASTIVERD UNIQUE A25 is produced by means of a proprietary chemical recycling process. The clean recycled PET is de-polymerized and mixed together with standard virgin PET raw materials, integrating both types of components into the re-polymerization process. Decontamination challenge tests prove that our production process results in a resin as pure as 100% virgin resin, even under the strictest conditions. For this reason, PLASTIVERD UNIQUE A25 can safely be used for all direct food contact applications
