Avery Dennison Expands AD Pure Line

Avery Dennison recently expanded its AD Pure range, a portfolio of inlays and tags which are entirely PET plastic-free.

The inlays and tags are sustainably produced with innovative antenna manufacturing technology. The antenna and chips are applied directly on paper, making the range 100% plastic-free. The inlays and tags offer substantial carbon footprint savings of 70-90% compared to traditional inlay manufacturing processes, as verified by independent Life Cycle Analysis (LCA) studies.

The five products in the expanded range include AD Midas FlagTag U9 Pure, AD Dogbone U9 Pure, AD Belt U( Pure, AD Web U9 Pure, and AD Miniweb U9 ETSI Pure.

Mathieu De Backer, Vice President Innovation & Sustainability, Avery Dennison, believes the expanded range is “a more sustainable option which can be applied across multiple segments and applications. Crucially, this supports clients with their recycling initiatives, as well as their respective carbon footprint and waste reduction programs.”
