Flint Coatings Making Unrecyclable Packaging Recyclable
PET bottles, are typically non-recyclable and can prove to be a real ‘bottleneck’ in circularity.

 Flint Group’s latest innovation includes Food Contact Material (FCM) compliant technologies that enhance shrink sleeves and label recyclability. Using Evolution products, previously unrecyclable products can be reprocessed, potentially boosting reclaimed material yield by up to 10%. Evolution products, they enable packaging to be reused in ever-evolving forms, are designed to increase the yield of material reclaimed from the recycling process by enabling label material to be recycled at the same time as a PET bottle without risk of contamination.
Evolution Deinking Primer prevents inks on labels and shrink sleeves from contaminating recycling streams.

Evolution Deinking Primer is applied to the substrate before the ink and provides strong ink adhesion throughout the life of the label.The Primer then enables the ink to be released (de-inked) into the recycling caustic wash and the substrate is broken down into flakes. This ensures that more than 99% of the material can be recycled into something new. The Evolution product range, launched in North America, has been recognized by the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) for compliance with critical guidance for PET packaging.
