NEW FOR 2018 RETRAN® PACKAGING
ENVIRONMENTAL & RECYCLING POLICIES
Our company objective is to continually review & improve the environmental impact across our entire product life cycle from materials sourcing, through manufacturing, logistics, the product use phase and end of life.
Retran is a fantastic new product produced using PET film which is more using 70% post-consumer waste derived from used drinks bottles.
The bottles are collected, sorted, cleaned and processed into PET flake that is then converted into rigid film to make Retran. The polymer manufacturer has certificates of conformity that confirm the waste source and content.The material has been trialed extensively and the results show this material is as strong as the PET film used to make Jetran tubing and clear folding boxes.The crystal clear transparency is maintained as only good quality bottles are used from approved sources & suitable for recycling.
Retran can be supplied on cut lengths or on reels. The film thickness varies from 200 Micron up to 400 Micron. The Retran tube can be formed into round, square, rectangular, triangular and hexagonal packaging shapes.Bell will be offering a standard range of Retran packaging with over 300 available shapes and sizes.The new product will be commercially available in 2018.
Typical application areas include window blinds, hardware & DIY products, pharmaceutical and promotional packs. In addition the material used to make Retran is certified for direct food contact making it suitable for displaying food and confectionery products. Retran packaging can also be produced in a BRC accredited facility if required.
