FILMS!

SORRY – BUT YOUR FILM IS PRO­DUCED EXCLUSI­VELY FROM WASTE.

New growth with our recycled films

Ever since the company was founded, Hammerl has specialised in the manufacture of high-quality products from waste materials. A special focus has always been on the recycling of plastic waste.
Thus, we have been an important partner in the recycling process for more than 60 years and contribute our share to environmental protection and sustainability.
We place great emphasis on energy and product optimisation. This applies to film production as well as the converting process. Various measures lead to a considerable reduction in CO2 emissions and energy consumption.

We are certified according to ISO 50001 : 2018 (energy management system) .

PLASTIC AND ENVIRON­MENTAL PROTECTION – DO THEY GO TOGETHER? DEFINITELY!

Resource-saving through the use of reclaimed materials from industry and households

Polyethylene – the environmentally friendly plastic
PE is a by-product of oil refining. In the early days of oil refining, the raw material was considered a waste product and disposed of; today it is processed into polyethylene.

PE consists of carbon and hydrogen.
This means that no toxic vapours, gases, or slags are produced either during processing or thermal disposal.
PE is 100% recyclable and reusable as often as desired!

OVER 95% OF RAW MATERIALS FOR OUR PRODUCTS ARE RECYCLED FROM DIFFERENT SECTORS.

Resource-saving through the use of reclaimed materials from industry and households

PCR – Post Consumer Recycling
Over 70% of our raw materials come from PCR. In this process, household and commercial waste (e.g. shopping bags and packaging) is collected, sorted, cleaned, and processed into granulate by waste management companies. We then process this “plastic waste” further here in our factory into new products for the construction and packaging industries. And these products are also 100% recyclable and can be returned to the material cycle!
So: by disposing of them correctly, you are helping to protect the environment!

PIR – Post Industrial Recycling
Misprints or incorrectly produced goods can lead to waste that cannot be reused by the manufacturer. These waste materials come to us via the PIR cycle. Our own production waste and scrap is also collected and returned to the production process via our in-house regeneration plant.

Prime / 1a / NT
This group of raw materials is already created during the production of the PE raw material. Here it gets a bit technical: For example, there is PE with different flow behaviour which is typified according to the so-called melt index. When switching from one melt index to another, up to 15 tonnes of “non-type-compliant” goods can be produced here. This conversion product is therefore the first waste product in the material chain and is used by us for particularly high-quality films.
