Vinyl is an excellent material for packaging because it is safe, sturdy, economical, easily manufactured, and environmentally responsible. In rigid or flexible form, vinyl is used to package a vast range of products including electronics, personal care products, medicine, health care devices, household goods, toys, food, and liquids.
Command Plastic pioneered a method for sealing rigid thermoform vinyl to flexible vinyl. Other commonly used specialty substrates are polyester with or without vinyl backing, flexible polyurethane, EVA and PEVA. Closures can also be customized in plastic or metal.
YES. Millions of pounds of post-consumer vinyl are recycled each year, and more than one billion pounds are recycled at the post-industrial level. Many finished vinyl building and construction products contain some amount of recycled content. The Society of the Plastics Industry coding system, which is law in 39 states, uses a symbol to identify PVC. The vinyl industry has an extensive history of supporting recycling. This effort continues as companies alone, or through their trade associations, expand existing programs and explore new opportunities to recover vinyl products at the end of their useful life.
