Retran - A new clear tube solution made using redundant drinks bottles

This product joins the Jetran® family which provides the world’s leading solution for clear tubing.  This is produced using PET film which includes up to 70% post-consumer waste derived from redundant drinks bottles.

The material has been trialled extensively and the results show this material is as strong as the PET film used to make Jetran® tubing and clear folding boxes.

Bell will be offering a standard range of Retran® with over 300 available shapes and sizes.

The new product will be commercially available in Q1 2018.
