Revolution introduces Encore Wrap, a high-performance hand stretch film made with 10% post-consumer recycled (PCR) resin. The product has received certification from Scientific Certification Systems (SCS) Global Services, a leading third-party body for environmental practices, making Encore Wrap the only certified PCR stretch film on the market. 

The new hand-stretch film contains Revolution’s proprietary, third-party certified Encore PCR, which produces a higher quality of clarity and strength than traditionally observed in plastic stretch wrap film that contains PCR.

Revolution leverages more than 25 years’ flexible film manufacturing and recycling experience to include the company's own Encore PCR resin into plastic stretch film. It delivers an effective, sustainable solution that can help the warehousing, transportation, and commercial industries reduce their environmental impact and achieve sustainability goals.

The Encore Wrap material imparts a light blue tint in roll form that is recognizable as Revolution’s certified Encore PCR resin, yet it retains high clarity when applied to a pallet. Revolution’s upgraded multilayered plastic stretch film is stiff cast with a quiet release and provides exceptional strength with resins designed to provide maximum load holding force and high puncture resistance. Customers can wrap more with less film because the strength allows for gauge reduction. In turn, these factors contribute to overall reduction in materials needed.

The company also collects stretch-film waste from distributor clients to support the production of the high-quality PCR resin that’s added into Encore Wrap, creating a circular approach to manufacturing and recycling plastic stretch film.

Revolution’s vertically integrated business model effectively manages the lifecycle of plastic while maintaining the smallest possible carbon footprint. 

“Revolution’s goal to consistently improve our products while remaining true to our core commitment to sustainability has resulted in a game-changing upgrade to our plastic stretch film product line,” says Gregg Smith, VP of sustainable stretch.
