Bostik M-ResinsTM for resealable packaging approved for PE recycling
Bostik’s reseal M‑ResinsTM are an innovative solution answering to consumer demands for convenience and providing sustainability by offering considerable material source reduction. M‑Resins are used in the food packaging industry to produce resealable films and lids. Sustainability has become the primary focus of the packaging industry, at each level of the value chain. As a result of this engagement and the continuous work done to contribute to packaging circular economy, Bostik has obtained the approval by Recyclass that M‑Resins™ technology, a pressure sensitive adhesive enabling resealable packaging, is compatible and conforms to the current European PE film recycling stream.
With one of the largest range of available technologies in house, more than 130 years of experience, and a global presence, Bostik, the Adhesive solutions segment of Arkema, is well positioned and deeply engaged in helping its customers and all members of the value chain to solve this challenge.
This approval is aligned with Arkema’s efforts to propose sustainable solutions to its customers. The Group has joined the Dow Jones Sustainability Index and has been rewarded in November 2020 for its performance in sustainability and for integrating its corporate social responsibility (CSR) approach within its development strategy.
