Avery Dennison’s Wash-off Adhesive Receives Approval for PET Bottle RecyclingAvery Dennison’s WB0030 wash-off adhesive has been approved by Returpack & Infinitum for recycling PET bottles. The approval has created new opportunities for sustainable packaging. The adhesive washes off in a 65°C caustic bath and leaves no residue behind, making it fully compatible with the current recycling process.

Additionally, the label performs like any other conventional PP label and offers good resistance against water whitening, as well as excellent printing performance with a TC7007 topcoat. The adhesive is suitable for converters partnering with brands that deliver beverages in Scandinavian countries. It can be used on PET bottles for alcoholic beverages, juice, and water, among other products.

Making Impact on PET Recycling


This adhesive has the potential to make an important impact on PET recycling in several Scandinavian countries. Since it separates easily and cleanly from PET during the washing phase, it can ensure more beverage bottles complete the recycling process and become something new. Converters will find that it performs much like conventional alternatives, so they can begin working with it immediately,” said Liselotte den Ouden, film product manager at Avery Dennison.

Labels with this adhesive are available in white and clear options: PP50 TOP CLEAR WB0030 PET23 and PP60 CAVIT TOP WHITE WB0030 PET23.
