APR Publishes PE Film Critical Guidance and Test Documents


A new testing protocol that determines whether film packaging is compatible with the current recycling infrastructure in North America has been developed by the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR).

The Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) recently announced the publication of the PE Film Critical Guidance Test Protocol as an addition to The APR Design® Guide for Plastics Recyclability. The new test, resulting from extensive industry collaboration, measures the capability of innovative film packaging to be recycled into new thin film applications.
