CCL Label has created a sustainable TD sleeve material with the aim of helping the packaging industry to meet its recycling targets. This EcoFloat material complies with all CCL conformity standards and has been engineered to improve the sink/float separation process relating to PET bottles.

With high performing 360° sleeves, CCL offers design freedom and strong visual impact at the point of sale. Utilizing its established expertise in the field of film manufacturing, CCL has developed a solution to support customers’ sustainability targets with maximum cost-efficiency.

“Meeting the Association of Plastic Recyclers (APR) standards in the US and the European PET Bottle Platform (EPBP) standards in Europe is becoming increasingly important,” Norbert Fenkart, head of R&D said. “EcoFloat was designed to meet economic and environmental sustainability goals while enhancing the look & feel of the product.” 


The product’s technical features include: clear polyolefin film material, material floats with ink, design freedom with shrinkage up to >60%, softer touch for squeeze-bottle applications, and support for the PET bottle-to-bottle recycling process.

In the view of CCL, sustainability is about more than just conservation; it also means being responsible corporate citizens while producing quality products. A key part of this process is working internally with employees and externally with partners to create more efficient and environmentally friendly options. CCL says that it is committed to preserving the environment, not just because it’s the right thing to do, but because we all breathe the same air, drink the same water and live with the limited resources of this planet.
