With superior heat sealing characteristics, EcoStar Heat-Sealable (HS) lines of extruded PET rollstock provides brand owners and thermoformers a sustainable, 100% recyclable, alternative to less eco-friendly materials. With sealing characteristics similar to PVC and PETG, the HS lines can be used on existing thermoforming and sealing equipment requiring no new or additional capital investment. The innovative material can be used with RF, plastic to plastic and ultrasonic welding machines and is perfect for aqueous and solvent based card stock for heat sealing.
Heat Sealable PET Rollstock
HS 1003 BioAPET Rollstock
The EcoStar HS lines save energy by running at lower temperatures, sealing quicker (up to 2X faster) than PETG, with lower specific gravity compared to PVC providing greater yields. And for brand owners and thermoformers seeking to meet sustainability initiatives, our HS 1003 extruded thin-gauge rollstock is made with up to 30% material from renewable sources.
HS 1002 APET Rollstock
The HS 1002 APET line of extruded PET rollstock contains a HS cap layer and APET core. This high clarity material performs and seals similarly to PVC and PETG but is 100% recyclable and, like all our HS lines, can be recycled in existing recycling streams. The high impact HS material has superior heat sealing characteristics, sealing roughly 2X faster than PETG.
HS 1000 APET/RPET Rollstock
The EcoStar HS 1000 line of co-extruded PET rollstock contains a heat sealable cap layer with a recycled PET, PC50™, core – perfect for sustainable plastic clamshells or blister packaging requiring full perimeter seals for strong protection and pilferage resistance. The core PC50 layer of the rollstock is extruded with up to 100% post-consumer recycled PET from curbside collected bottles and thermoforms with up to 15% recycled thermoform inclusion.
