The properties are achieved by the addition of an oxo-biodegradable additive to the film which changes the behavior so that it breaks down and degrades, regardless of the disposal route. The beauty of this is that we can engineer the film to a desired lifespan depending on your requirements (typically 3-12 months).
The material begins the degradation process in the instant it is exposed to sunlight (UV), mechanical stress or moisture meaning that there are no extra efforts required compared with using standard stretch films.
We have concluded that this is the best method of achieving an eco-friendly stretch film which still has the required elongation and memory properties to make it an alternative solution to our standard stretch films.
