100 % recyclable MDO-PE films
The RKW Group is committed to its responsibility and works with its customers and partners to give plastics a sustainable perspective. RKW, having a long term experience in MDO technology, now is also offering MDO-PE solutions for packaging applications.
An important component of this strategy is RKW Horizon - a 100 percent recyclable MDO film made of polyethylene (PE) for packaging solutions from monomaterial laminates.
RKW being ISCC+ certified we can offer our MDO-PE films also with chemical recycled or biobased resins, keeping the same mechanical properties as with virgin materials.
RKW is investing in this future technology and will expand its production capacities in 2022, with a new high-end 9-layer MDO-PE extrusion line at the site Petersaurach / Germany.
