Aptar Food + Beverage has launched its new SimpliCycle recyclable valve technology.

The SimpliCycle valve offers recyclability while still maintaining all of the same advantages of Aptar’s standard and Swimming Silicone valves, including high repeatable performance and slit versatility to fit a wide variety of applications for food, beverage, and other product applications.

“Aptar is committed to providing recyclable flow control solutions to meet not only our corporate sustainability commitments, but also our customers’ sustainability goals,”​ Susan DeGroot, director of product marketing, said.

“The real break-through is offering a recyclable valve solution that does not sacrifice performance. Our SimpliCycle TPE valve will continue to provide consistent, quality performance for consumers, who expect a high-level of cleanliness, control, and convenience throughout their dispensing experience.”

Aptar’s SimpliCycle valve is made from a TPE material with a low density that allows the valve to float, so it is easily separated from the PET stream, and then ultimately recycled within the PP/PE olefin stream.

Maximum flow control combined with clean dispensing ensures consumers get precise amounts of product, avoiding drips, leaks, or spills, Aptar said.
