DataLase has developed a groundbreaking technology that enhances the recyclability of HDPE bottles. By incorporating a unique pigment during the masterbatch stage of production, this pigment remains invisible until activated by a laser. This innovation has been tested and certified by RecyClass, the leading certification system for plastic packaging recyclability, and has received an impressive Grade A rating.

The attainment of the highest possible level of certification indicates that DataLase’s technology does not present any recyclability issues and that the resulting recycled plastics can be used in a closed-loop scheme without compromising their quality. Moreover, DataLase’s label-free pigment solution is implemented at low concentrations, ensuring that the bottle recycling process remains uncontaminated and unaffected by coloration.

In addition to its recycling benefits, DataLase’s label-free solution eliminates the need for labels, inks, and other consumables on plastic bottles. This simplifies supply chains, reduces energy costs, and contributes to a lower environmental impact. The durable graphics, barcodes, QR codes, and serial numbers incorporated within the plastic bottles maintain their integrity, ensuring that the information remains intact. Furthermore, the one-step method of incorporating the solution makes it user-friendly and easy to implement.

Ally Grant, the Chief Technology Officer of DataLase, expressed delight at receiving a Grade A certification for the company’s technology. Grant emphasized that DataLase is revolutionizing the plastic bottle industry by providing a solution that allows for decoration without compromising recyclability. This innovative approach not only addresses recyclability issues but also supports sustainability efforts throughout the supply chain.
