plastic packaging and the environment what are my options
Plastic Packaging and the Environment..What are my options?
  • Degradable / Biodegradable films
  • 100% Biodegradable films(according to EN 13432)
  • 100% Biodegradable films as above made from renewable materials. Bioplastics
  • Recyclable
  • Reusable
  • Incinerable
biodegradable opp
Biodegradable OPP
  • Same performance as OPP films
  • Degradable / Biodegradable to ASTM D5526-94
  • An oil based product with an additive to make biodegradable
  • This product cannot claim to be compostable as it does not complete the degradation process inside 6 months

OPP
  • This product offers high clarity, crisp film
  • Care must be taken during the storage of the film as prolonged exposure to UV light begins the degradation process
en 13432 what is it
EN 13432. What is it?
  • Characterisation
  • Biodegradability
  • Disintegration
  • Compost Quality
  • Recognisable Product
biodegradability
Biodegradability
  • Under the action of the bacteria present in the soil, breaks down leaving basically nothing but water and carbon gas
  • Standards: after 90 days, 90% of carbon becomes CO2. Any residual waste will pass through a 2mm screen (0,008Inch). No negative effect on the quality of the resulting compost. (Tested with 2 plants)
disintegration
Disintegration
  • The degradation process begins when the bags are in the condition of final use, not in storage
  • Degradation time depends on the quantity of bacteria in the function of temperature, pH and humidity
degradation test
Degradation Test

Temperature:

40degrees

  • Time 84 hours
  • Humidity: 60-70%
  • Does the film tear?
  • YES (degradation has begun)

Temperature:

30degrees

  • Time 84 hours
  • Humidity: 60-70%
  • Does the film tear?
  • YES (degradation has begun)
  • Home Composter

Temperature:

23degrees

  • Time: 84 hours
  • Humidity: 60-70%
  • Does the film tear?
  • NO
compost
Compost
  • 610mm below the ground surface is a constant temperature of 68 degrees. The humidity and pH are perfect for degradation. A bioplast material film will compost within 90 days
  • Bioplastic is the only material which can use the OKCompost Logo (from Vincotte) and "Compostable" logo (from Din Certco)
  • Our material is suitable for home compost and can display the OKCOMPOST HOME logo
what are bioplastics
What are Bioplastics?
  • Bioplastics are biodegradable biopolymers in accordance with Standard EN 13432, made from renewable raw materials, vegetable or animal
  • Our material is compostable in industrial and home composters and can use the OK to Compost Home logo. (Approved by Vincotte)
renewable
Renewable
  • Plants reproduce themselves endlessly, as long as they are provided with light, water and mineral nutrients.
  • Bioplastics are made from carbon present in live vegetable matter.
making my packaging
Making my packaging..
  • 40 – 60% of the content is from renewable sources, blended with a
  • co- polyester from BASF
  • The material can be coloured using a 100% biodegradable masterbatch
  • The material can be printed and still complies with EN 13432 as long as the print does not exceed 2% of the finished structure
summary
Summary
  • Bioplastics are the only true 100% biodegradable films which are made from renewable sources
  • Biodegradable OPP offers a high clarity, crisp film
