Jet Technologies launches Encore range with Impact Labels and Ultra Labels

Jet Technologies has announced the implementation of its Encore range of recycled content BOPP films in partnership with Impact Labels and Ultra Labels.

Impact Labels, a Brisbane-based Australian-owned and operated player in the label production industry since 2006, has been using Jet’s Encore range for the past six months.

Harry McFadyen, production manager at Impact Labels, said: “Our clients have been asking for an environmental solution for some time and we decided to trial Jet’s range of Encore films. We found the performance both on-press and at the point of label application to be equal to the previously supplied laminates. The choice was easy to move all our laminated work to the Encore range in order to offer a more sustainable solution for laminated products.”

Ultra Labels, an Australian-owned label and flexible packaging manufacturer operating out of Brisbane and the Barossa Valley, has been using Encore films for more than a year.

Johnny Marusic, Production Manager at Ultra Labels said: “Ultra Labels is known as a leading innovator in the label and digital flexible packaging space. Our clients expect that we use the most sustainable products in our production. We have found the Encore recycled film to be even better than the old film, with zero rejected rolls and improved adhesion to our print. As a result, we have move all of our laminated work to the Encore range.”

Jet Technologies is a pioneer in the films market, offering a diverse portfolio that includes traditional BOPP and PET films as well as innovative sensory options like Soft Touch and Rough Touch ranges. In recent years, the company has focused on sustainability and solutions that meet the changing regulatory landscape and consumer expectations.

Encore films contain a significant percentage of recycled content, helping to work towards meeting the APCO 2025 targets of initially 30 per cent and now 50 per cent recycled content in all plastic used in Australia.

Jack Malki, director, Jet Technologies, said the challenge of sourcing high-quality recycled resin that meets strict standards has been met with the Encore range.

“Initially introduced with a minimum of 20 per cent post-industrial recycled content, this figure was quickly upgraded to 30 per ent, with ISCC PLUS certification ensuring compliance. Recently, the inclusion of post-consumer waste resins has further enhanced the sustainability of Encore films,” he said.

“The future of sustainable packaging looks promising with Encore films. As more high-quality recycled resins become available, the percentage of recycled content in Encore films will continue to increase, supporting printers and brand owners in achieving APCO targets.”
