Different proportions of recycled poly(ethylene terephthalate) (PET) films were blended with virgin PET and evaluated for physicomechanical, chemical, thermal, optical and barrier properties. The safety evaluation of the Ælms for food contact applications has also been carried out. The variations in properties, such as tensile behaviour, impact strength, tear resistance, burst strength, gloss, haze, barrier properties, crystallization temperature and melting temperature, are reported.
