TAILOR-MADE SOLUTIONS
WITH NIR BLACK

Evertis IR Black products are tailor-made monolayer or multilayer films that are formulated with an IR Black masterbatch that is detectable by the current sorting technology in recycling processes. Standard packages produced with carbon black pigments are non-detectable and difficult to sort out during the separation process.  Consequently, films produced with carbon black masterbatches end up with the mixed polymer stream and therefore aren’t recycled. Evertis has developed a new sustainable alternative that is carbon black free, improving the recyclability of materials and packaging and therefore achieves a solution for a circular economy.

Evertis IR Black films are food contact approved, ideal for either MAP or vacuum packaging and are effectively processed through HPP. A unique PET-based structure available both with and without barrier that offer superior performance for a wide range of applications.
