Polykar’s new TVEplus is the first in Canada

Ipswich, MA / Saint-Laurent, QC- June 21, 2011: Polykar, Inc., Saint-Laurent, Quebec, a leading manufacturer of polyethylene film, bags and packaging, has installed an EREMA TVEplus plastics recycling system. The TVEplus is the most advanced system in the TVE series and is the first placed in Canada.

According to Amir Karim, Polykar Vice President of Business Development, “The addition of the TVEplus allows us to significantly reduce waste and material expenses without compromising the quality of our products. With it we can effectively reclaim highly printed film and roll scrap and process it into superior quality repro pellets for use in our trash bag lines.”

The TVEplus was designed to recycle the increasingly more heavily inked and additive laden plastics packaging common today. When compared with less advanced systems, tests of the TVEplus, with heavily printed packaging film, show an increase of approximately three times the efficiency at removing gases derived from ink, binding agents, other additives and incidental contaminating materials. In less efficient systems, traces of these contaminants are more likely
to survive, causing bubbles, blisters, and film tears which can cause finished products to be unusable.

EREMA launched the TVEplus technology in 2009 and has now sold over 40 units in 20 countries. For further information on the EREMA TVEplus system, please see us at booth 2562 at the Plast-Ex exhibition in Toronto Canada from June 21-23, 2011.
