A more efficient way to get greater value from multi-layer barrier film
ReVive™ Compatibilizer masterbatch is a synergistic blend of functional additives that allow multilayer barrier film scrap to be re-processed into a quality regrind that can be fed back into prime film. This minimizes the environmental impact of barrier film packaging and reduces the amount of scrap sent to landfills. Film producers can also save by lowering their use of virgin resin.
ReVive™ Compatibilizer enables barrier packaging to be recycled allowing CPGs to qualify for SPC’s How2Recycle classifications. Packages incorporating ReVive™ Compatibilizer support a circular economy and help meet brand sustainability goals.
Rigorous testing of mixed resin blends of nylon/EVOH and polyethylene materials containing 3-5% ReVive™ showed that there was no significant difference in tensile properties and drop dart impact compared to PE controlled film. Research showed ReVive™ returns fractional melt polyolefin/barrier scrap material to measurable flow properties so they can be reprocessed at normal polyolefin temperatures.
Ampacet designs specific ReVive™ solutions that allow recycling of polyolefin EVOH-based barrier film scraps into the original film structure for enhanced optical properties.
ReVive™ improves the homogeneity and transparency of reprocessed polymer blends. Mechanical properties of films made with these blends are similar to the main base polymer.
