Leading the sustainable packaging industry with our photodegradable rings that typically break down in 4 to 6 weeks.

For years there was a myth about six pack ring can carriers harming wildlife. It’s simply NOT true. Over the years we’ve invested a lot of time, resources and research to prove that our six pack rings are by far one of the most environmentally friendly choices for beverage multi-packaging.

Our six pack ring can carriers are highly decomposable in sunlight. The Discovery Channel’s hit TV show ‘Myth Busters’ debunked this myth about our six pack rings and how they decompose in sunlight after 4-6 weeks.

Our ring products are the fastest on the market to photodegrade. Significant advances in our materials have taken place that allows our rings to disintegrate in sunlight in just about 1 month. By far, our six pack ring carriers are one of the most environmentally friendly choices for beverage multi-packaging.

How does the photodegradable ring carrier break down?

The photodegradable six pack ring carrier is sensitive to sunlight. The sun’s ultraviolet rays cause the carrier to become brittle, so that it breaks down into even smaller and smaller pieces under the effects of wind, rain and other environmental forces.

How long does it take to break down?

The six pack ring carrier loses approximately 75% of its strength within days of direct exposure to sunlight. It can become completely brittle in a matter of weeks when the carrier is exposed to direct or indi­rect sunlight. The speed at which it becomes brittle will vary with the time of year, temperature, latitude and any other factors, which limit the amount of ultraviolet (UV) light exposure to the carrier. The carrier will not degrade if behind a glass window or otherwise shielded from UV exposure.

Photodegradable Rings

We are leaders in sustainable packaging because our photodegradable rings become totally brittle in 4 to 6 weeks (12 weeks in the winter).
