BROKEN ARROW, Okla., March 6, 2024 – Paragon Films, a market-leading manufacturer of value added, ultra-high performance stretch film products, today announced the launch of Beyond PCR—the world’s first ultra-high performance, thin-gauge machine film derived from certified-pending, post-consumer recycled content.

The 55 gauge machine film is the latest addition to Paragon Films’ SVPR (Sustainability: Virgin Plastic Reduction) product line, which comprises thin-gauge, ultra-high performance stretch films that enable extreme down-gauging and less virgin plastic used. Beyond PCR is the industry’s first PCR machine film manufactured in North America, certified (pending) by SCS Global Services to contain post-consumer recycled resin. With 25 percent and 10 percent PCR offerings, Beyond PCR promotes circularity by reducing plastic waste and using the least amount of virgin plastic.

“Plastic waste is a major problem in North America and it takes real solutions to create real change,” said Paragon Senior Vice President of Marketing, Customer Operations Tim Moar. “Unlike other claimed PCR offerings in the marketplace, our Beyond PCR machine film delivers a real solution by providing confidence, quality, cost reduction, and circularity. We’re proud to offer this SVPR solution to help our customers achieve their sustainability goals.”
