Each municipality is different so make sure to check how you can properly recycle your aerosol cans instead of throwing them away.

ECLIPSE™ Stretch Film

The most sustainable stretch film in the world

Delivering the performance you expect from the highest quality stretch films on the market, our revolutionary SPTek ECLIPSE™ Stretch Film is changing the game. Our stretch film is 100% recyclable and will completely bio-assimilate in marine, terrestrial and landfill environments within 6–24 months, leaving behind zero microplastics.

ECLIPSE™ Co-Ex Films

Multi-purpose films that reduce environmental impact

Our truly innovative SPTek ECLIPSE™ co-ex films have been developed to meet today's packaging challenges head-on, making them a vital tool in sustainable flexible packaging design. Like all ECLIPSE™ enabled products, our co-ex films will completely bio-assimilate following their guaranteed lifespan if they evade the recycling system.

ECLIPSE™ Pouch

A sustainable pouch that's truly recyclable

The SPTek ECLIPSE™ Pouch delivers the quality and freshness that you expect from any premium barrier pouch. Unlike other multi-layer pouches on the market, the ECLIPSE™ Pouch is 100% recyclable and will completely bio-assimilate after its tailor-made guaranteed functional life, resulting in zero microplastics.

ECLIPSE™ Straw

A truly sustainable drinking straw

Satisfying all of the quality requirements for hot, cold, foamy and frozen drinks while reducing environmental impact, the SPTek ECLIPSE™ Straw performs in all beverages. Following guaranteed life, this product will completely bio-assimilate within 6-42 months if it evades the recycling system: a critical part of the solution to global plastic waste.

Our team is ready and excited to connect with you. See you at the show!
