Compostable Barrier Film

Compostable Barrier Film

Shipping calculated at checkout.

Description: 

Eco-responsible barrier film used during Elim Callus Removal. It can also be used to protect work surfaces from bacteria, viruses and liquids.

It is thicker than regular plastic wrap and good for all surfaces. 

100% compostable means that PLA products are fully renewable. It can be converted back to monomer and polymer, or, it can be bio-degraded into water, carbon dioxide and organic materials. 

PLA is much more sustainable than regular petroleum-made plastic. PLA is the common name for Polylactic Acid or Polyactide. PLA is made from starch rich plants such as corn, wheat, and sugar beets. These plants are first milled to separate the starch, from which unrefined dextrose is processed. The unrefined dextrose goes through a fermentation process and the result is lactic acid. 

The tested PBAT polymer is a fossil-based, biodegradable polymer, which is used amongst others to produce biodegradable, certified compostable bio-waste bags (according to EN 13432) or biodegradable in soil certified mulch films (according to EN 17033). 

Our wrap is a combination of PLA and PBAT bioplastic which is why it is able to break down outside of an industrial facility. 

Features 

• Material: PLA + PBAT
• 30cm (11.8 inches) wide x 100m (328 inches)
• 15 microns thick
• Stick on zipper to cut wrap (found inside roll)


Benefits

• 100% compostable
• Performs better than standard plastic wrap as it is thicker


Biodegradability: Industrially composted within 90 days.
If home composted or sent to a landfill, this wrap decomposes within 9 months only leaving CO2 and water behind. Our wrap is a combination of PLA and PBAT bio-plastic. Combined with its considered thickness these materials are able to break down outside of industrial composting facilities. We've tested both in a home compost scenario and buried in dirt with no aeration and this material completely decomposes. Weather variables can interrupt the 9 month timeline in colder climates but full decomposition always occurs.
