BioBag is a pioneer of the bioplastics industry. Its films strongly contribute to building powerful, environmentally focused brands, without compromising performance. The unique characteristics of its films make them suitable for packaging, hygiene products and various industry applications.
BioBag has decades of experience creating customised films with accurate performance to meet customer product application requirements.
The mechanical properties of the company's technical films are similar to LDPE to HDPE, meaning that its films can be processed in standard converting and packaging lines and techniques, without any major changes. The films can be flexo printed and coloured with compostable masterbatch, without any pretreatment. They have a good adhesion to paper and non-wovens, and are excellent barriers to oil and fats.
In the hygiene industry, BioBag films have a soft and silky surface that is well suited for direct contact with the body. The natural breathability of the films allows moisture to evaporate, giving increased comfort and drier skin.
BioBag compostable films are hypo-allergenic and non-cytotoxic, which means they are certified as a biological barrier to viruses and bacteria, while still maintaining breathability.
The advantages offered to BioBag's customers include:
- sustainable branding with the company's films
- certified compostable and biodegradable products
- products that can be made in many colours using compostable masterbatches
- choice of eight coloured compostable inks
- thicknesses of 8-18¬µ
- widths available over 5m.
Every day, tons of packaging waste are sent to landfill, due to the challenges of preparing these materials for recycling. The food and packaging industry is a sector where a more sustainable approach would make a significant difference. For the food industry, this challenge can be turned into a competitive advantage using sustainable packaging. Consumers are increasingly eco-conscious, and by providing sustainable packaging, a company can become a market leader, and the preferred option for consumers.
