Assessment of Printed Product Recyclability - Scorecard for the Removability of Adhesive Applications
The sufficient removal of adhesive applications is one of the challenges for the paper manufacturers using paper for recycling. This EPRC document provides an assessment of the removability of adhesive applications of a printed paper product as one aspect of its recyclability. The assessment is done by evaluating results of a laboratory test procedure. It is applicable to all kinds of printed paper products containing any adhesive applications.
