They are available in gloss/gloss, gloss/matte, and matte/matte surfaces.

Pentaprint® SmartCycle® Rigid PET Films

Klöckner Pentaplast offers SmartCycle® films to help our customers achieve their sustainable packaging goals. Made from recycled plastic beverage bottles, these films are used for trays, clamshells, blisters, all-plastic boxes, and various other containers as well as printed signage and stationery applications.

SmartCycle® films offer a range of products with various guaranteed levels of post-consumer recycled plastic bottle content. These films are certified to meet packaging regulations and to comply with all FDA regulations for direct food contact as well as all applicable EU regulations and directives for food contact.

SmartCycle® films provide a plastic product option to consumer product companies and retailers while building long-term value by helping them move toward their sustainable product goals. Because the SmartCycle® logo may appear on the plastic products using this film, consumers can make educated choices on their purchases.

The SmartCycle® process of making film from recycled plastic bottles saves energy, natural resources, and, ultimately, will help spur collection of bottles and potentially products. This begins with marking all products with the SmartCycle® logo derived from the petaloid base found on most PET bottles. A key goal of SmartCycle® is to help people feel positive (Smart) about and responsible for their product choice by conveying the story of sustainable products to the entire value chain (Cycle)—consumers, retailers, OEMs, converters, printers, and resource recovery plants. Finally, at the end of the use cycle, the goal of the SmartCycle® mark is to facilitate actual recycling—not down cycling. Currently, most municipalities, retailers, and recycling companies collect only bottles and do not recycle plastic products due to concern for mixing polymer types. With a unique identifying mark, SmartCycle® products could potentially allow these items to be reprocessed into new products along with bottles made from like plastics.

Pentaprint® Rigid Vinyl Films with Dynox Treatment

Klöckner Pentaplast vinyl films with Dynox surface treatment give you superior ink adhesion when using UV ink systems for a variety of print and folding carton applications. Dynox is a proprietary surface treatment, and kp is the exclusive global supplier of these specially treated films.

  • Pentaprint® films with Dynox treatment provide a simple solution for the difficult problem of ink adhesion on gloss films
  • Dynox treatment significantly improves ink adhesion in heavily stressed areas
  • Unlike corona treatment, Dynox treatment does not wash or wear off with normal handling, so it has a longer shelf life. Klöckner Pentaplast offers a one-year guarantee for all Pentaprint® films with Dynox treatment
  • These films eliminate the need for both a primer coat for ink adhesion and a varnish top coat for scratch protection, saving you time and expense
  • With these films, high surface tension remains constant. Dynox treatment provides film surface energy values in excess of 45 dyne/cm, which is substantially higher than untreated vinyl.
