EnviroFlex® PCR

For multi-layer applications requiring extra durability or barrier performance, end of-life recycling options remain out of reach. As we wait while the global recycling infrastructure improves, the best way to achieve sustainability attributes today is to add renewable or recycled raw materials into the manufacturing process.

EnviroFlex® PCR is a high-barrier, high durability film that is made with post-consumer recycled content secured from both mechanical and advanced recycling operations.

  • Available as a premade pouch or rollstock
  • Ideal for coffee, pet foods, or other items requiring enhanced pouch performance
