NEW Clysar® EVO™ and Clysar® EVOX™ Recyclable Shrink Films Offer a Pre-Approved Solution for Store Drop-Off.

Recyclable new Clysar® shrink films are pre-approved for the How2Recycle® Store Drop-Off label, making the application process faster and easier. Available in both multi-purpose (Clysar® EVO™) and high-speed, high-strength (Clysar® EVOX™) films, these films help meet new retailer mandates for recyclable packaging, and offer official letters of prequalification from the How2Recycle program.


Clysar® HPG Confidential Film Eliminates Secondary Shipping Boxes.

Opaque Clysar® HPG Confidential film offers a strong, lightweight secondary packaging solution to replace bulky corrugate boxes. Ideal for e-commerce, shipping and store fulfillment, the film reduces DIM weight and volume, and can save as much $2 in packaging and shipping costs.


Protective AFG Anti-Fog and Produce Films Increase Shelf Life.

Improved Clysar® AFG anti-fog and other produce films can dramatically extend shelf life; provide a protective “touch-free” layer of consumer safety; and significantly reduce food damage, spoilage and waste.


Non-Toxic Shrink Films Replace PVC.

Clysar offers a number of high-performance drop-in polyolefin shrink film replacements for standard chloride-based PVC shrink films, which emit toxins during manufacturing and in the recycling stream.

Sustainable Clysar® shrink films are manufactured in the United States under the environmentally and socially responsible standards demanded by today’s packaging decision-makers and consumers. Clysar provides full application support for new or drop-in sustainable packaging initiatives, with full developmental and technical expertise to optimize new formats, quantify environmental improvements, evaluate cost savings and fast-track projects.
