Pentalabel® SmartCycle®

Pentalabel® SmartCycle® is the next generation of shrink-sleeve film that makes recycling as easy as finding a recycling bin. Shrink sleeves made with Pentalabel® SmartCycle® film recycles directly with any PET bottle or container. No longer do you need to remove the label. Recycling labels right with the container or bottle increases the amount of post-consumer recycled material available which reduces the burden on new raw materials and enhances the circular economy.
