Research & Development

EcoStar is a company committed to the ongoing research and development of new recyclable and recycled PET rollstock options that meet the highest standards of performance, clarity and quality in the industry.


Our post-consumer recycled PET rollstock products were some of the first to utilize thermoforms in sheet blends. Our thermoform to thermoform or T2T™ process allows us to recycle bottles and thermoforms together to create the perfect blend of high performing, eco-conscious rollstock material. Currently up to 15% of post-consumer thermoforms are utilized in our recycled rollstock formulations.


EcoStar’s patented heat-sealable PET rollstock is the first of its kind in the industry. The innovative PET material seals to itself and is comparable to PVC and PETG in its sealing characteristics. The 100% recyclable material takes less energy to seal with shorter dwell times then PVC or PETG.


Recently we added a bioPET rollstock blend to our line for the eco-conscious brand owner. And as we’re continuing to grow, our talented team of engineers are continuing to work on developing the most innovative, high performance and sustainable PET rollstock for thermoforming applications in the industry.
