Case Study: Sustainable heavy duty sack films containing 50% post-consumer recycled content maintain performance

ExxonMobil and Selene worked together to test formulations for heavy duty sack films based on 50% high-quality PCR PE combined with Exceed™ XP and Exceed™ performance PE polymers which help boost performance in recycled solutions. The inclusion of Exceed™XP 8318 in the formulation delivers excellent toughness to the heavy duty sack films, compensating for possible degradation in the properties of the PCR PE during the recycling process. The inclusion of Exceed™1012 increases bag drop resistance and enhances sealing performance. (* Recyclable in communities with programs and facilities in place that collect and recycle plastic film.)

The Selene Group, a leading polyethylene (PE) film converter and recycler based in Italy, wanted to develop heavy duty sack films (Selene NextBag™) containing 50% post-consumer recycled (PCR) PE (Selene Premium Recycle Polymer) content in response to brand owner commitments, consumer feedback and regulatory changes. See how they did it in this case study.
