Specifics of Biodegradable Film

We work closely with the major global leaders of the biodegradable plastics resin industry to procure raw material for our compostable films. Our plastic film meets the following international standards for compostability:

  • in America - ASTM 6400
  • in Australia - AS 4736
  • in Europe - En13432
  • in Japan - Green Pla.

Polynova supplies a wide range of biodegradable film types. Starting from the simplest LLDPE, MDPE or HDPE biodegradable films, we are capable of configuring films with special properties such as fast sealing, or a range of high barrier property, multi-layer laminate films. You may choose between renewable material based resin (potato and corn resin) and traditional PE/PP resin for your degradable film.

Both types are 100% compostable. Due to the special bio-additive in the degradable resin, the film decomposes to bio-compost, water and carbon-dioxide. Longevity of the degradable film can be specified precisely to your needs.Depending on the specified configuration, bio-degradable films will begin decomposing from 6 to 36 months. Typical applications of the biodegradable film are special liners, waste management sheets, agricultural applications, retail and convenience bags.
