Sustainable Packaging

Because of the need expressed by our customers to recycle their trim into a “recyclable” or utility sheet, Pacur offers various engineered products. The demand for this type of offering comes from environmental and economic pressure. Pacur offers two recyclable PETG products.

RPETG clear when available is extruded from a mixture of Pacur’s internally generated clear recyclable material and regrind material obtained from our customers. This material is meant for use in utility and Non-FDA applications.

RPETG-SB is extruded from material that has been generated from Pacur’s in-house, recyclable scrap. The material s generated from virgin PETG for various markets. The material is also meant for use in utility and Non-FDA applications.

Other custom engineered products are available by working with our customers on an individual basis.

Electronics Packaging

We commonly think of static electricity as the simple “zap” that we receive after being touched by someone walking over carpet. However, these static zaps can destroy static sensitive parts resulting in huge dollar losses for electronic component and disk drive manufacturers. Electrostatic Discharge (ESD) must be controlled in order to insure high quality electronic and disk drive components. These products require special packaging.

Pacur has two types of products that currently are used to protect both electronic components and disk drives. Pacur PETG DTC or Pacur APET DTC gives manufactures the confidence they need to know their components will be safe. Pacur’s polyester products continue to offer the requirements that end-users must have such as:

  • Rigid package for impact protection (0.005” - 0.060”)
  • High clarity (suitable for scanning barcoded labels)
  • 10 exp 9 to 10 exp 11 surface resistance
  • Low solvent content
  • No chlorides or free amines
  • Low outgassing
  • Copolyester based
  • Humidity independent
