Ampacet-CompatibilizerAmpacet has introduced REVIVE™ 962E, a compatibilizer masterbatch that enables recycling of multi-material packaging made of polyolefin and technical polymer components into quality film applications.

Sustainable Solution for Multi-material Packaging

Ampacet REVIVE™ 962 E offers a sustainable solution for multi-material polyolefin barrier packaging that enables use of reclaimed material in quality film applications and provides an alternate end-of-life to landfill disposal. Ampacet REVIVE™ 962 E allows higher usage of recycled plastics and helps to reduce consumption of virgin material.

Benefits of REVIVE™ 962E

Ampacet REVIVE™ 962E is specifically designed for in-house recycling of polyolefin EVOH-based barrier film industrial scraps back into the original film structure, when preservation of optical and mechanical properties is required. It improves the homogeneity and transparency of reprocessed polymer blends. Mechanical properties of films made with these blends are similar to the main base polymer.

Circular Economy is a mandate for the plastic packaging industry in order to meet the recycling targets set by the European Commission. The European Commission mandates a minimum of 50% recycling of plastic packaging by 2025 (55% by 2030). targeting 10 million Mt of recycled plastics to be reused in the EU.
