Arconvert-Ritrama introduces eco-friendly adhesives

Arconvert-Ritrama introduces Ri-Move, a series of paper and film label materials developed specifically to enable easy recycling and reuse of containers and bottles

Arconvert-Ritrama launches Ri-Move, a series of paper and film label materials developed specifically to enable easy recycling and reuse of containers and bottles.

The legislative objectives in terms of recycling and reuse of packaging are increasingly stringent pressurizing manufacturers to produce packaging that can be effectively  recycled. Arconvert-Ritrama’s new series of self-adhesive materials has been developed to meet both the stringent requirements for recycling and the needs of customers.

The Ri-Move glass series, thanks to the AR816 and WR40 adhesive technologies combined with film and paper face materials, ensures a quick release of the label from the bottle without leaving any residues. These adhesives have been designed to remain adherent to the label without leaving any contaminants in the washing system itself. The WR40 adhesive can be combined with any paper face of the range.

The Ri-Move PET’s AR842 adhesive is designed to detach cleanly from PET flakes allowing polypropylene label fragments to float in the hot alkaline bath during the industrial washing, as required by the recycling processes. The PET fragments, which are now clean and residue-free, can be further recycled and reused.

The PET version has already obtained an important certification from the German Institut Cyclos, attesting that Ri-Move is fully compatible for recycling when applied on PET bottles.
