Recycle

The Polydime group is about the largest processor of recycled plastic film in Sri Lanka. Approximately 40% of our product is made from Recycled plastic. We have our own supply chain of collection, processing of waste, processing of finished product and distribution of recycle based products into the local and export markets.

Products & visuals

Contains X% Scrap

The product in reference contains the said % of material that has been made out of scrap plastic. This Scarp Plastic material would have normally found its way to a landfill, ocean or waterway. But as an organization we have been able to collect as much waste plastic (both Post consumer and Industrial waste) and re-process it into usable form. This is then engineered to perfection where products can be made out of them. Its quite a challenge to make good products with acceptable mechanical properties, appearance and the price point that is required.

Cont 40%

However our supply chain has been successful in blending scrap material with virgin material together to obtain the same or even better properties than usually achieved. We can include upto 40% scrap into a conventional plastic bag that is used for industrial applications. Hence the logo as seen below signifies the level of scrap included in making the bag.

Making Multilayer Packaging Recyclable

Multilayer packaging used in foods and beverage applications with an expiry date requires many layers of varied Plastics films in the form of Polyester, Polypropylene, Nylon ect to ensure keeping quality, good quality printing and high impact machinability in form fill line. When many different layers are included in the packaging, its recyclability is impossible through conventional recycle lines.

As start, the Polydime group has been able to formulate a special blend of Polymers to replace the Polyester layer in selected applications where barrier is not critical, with a Polyethylene layer. An print can be run effectively on this layer and then laminated with a regular Polyethylene layer to facilitate sealing effectively. Some key advantages that can be achieve are –

Cont 40%
  1. 100% Recyclable packaging solution under PE4 stream
  2. Almost 10% Lesser plastic can be used compared to regular product, paving the way for:-
    1. Packing cost saving
    2. Lesser environmental impact
  3. Better printability on special PE based film with high intensity tones for attractive design highlight
  4. Improved stiffness and high clarity to view product through window for better customer appeal
  5. Enhanced seal strength for heavy duty handling
