Our society uses
a lot of stretch film

Due to the globalized nature of our economy, stretch film is one of the largest uses of polyethylene in the world. With no real alternatives, essentially every pallet in the world is wrapped in this protective packaging.

100% of stretch film is made from plastic

Collectively, we manufacture nearly 2.5 billion lbs of stretch film each year. This means we're using enough stretch film to wrap around the earth 10 times... every single day.

Almost 95% of all stretch film is tossed

As it's such a massive industry, one would hope that we are recycling this product as much as possible. Unfortunately, this is not the case, with only an estimated 5% of all stretch film being recycled worldwide.

Sustainability is
no longer optional

We can't continue to ignore the impact that we're having on the environment.

It's time we take a good, hard look at the products that drive our economy and ensure they will not harm the planet and its inhabitants for generations to come.

Recyclable stretch film that bio-assimilates like paper

First and foremost, this stretch film is 100% recyclable and purposely designed for the circular economy. However, if it evades the recycling system, SPTek ECLIPSE™ Stretch Film will completely bio-assimilate in marine, terrestrial and all landfill environments within 12-42 months, resulting in zero microplastics.

What is
bio-assimilation?

Definitively, "bio-assimilation" means that the stretch film has degraded to a molecular weight that can be consumed by microorganisms, resulting in nothing more than CO2, water and biomass.

A molecular transformation

The bio-assimilation process takes place at a molecular level, breaking the carbon-to-carbon bonds within the polymer. It's critical to understand that this process does not result in microplastics.

Fuel source for microorganisms

With a tremendous amount of competition in the natural world, microorganisms clamber for the opportunity to utilize this newly available carbon as a fuel source.

Absolutely no microplastics

As this unstoppable process continues, all of the carbon within the stretch film is exposed and consumed, leaving behind nothing more than water, CO₂ and biomass.
