Jet Technologies oxo-degradable plastic film

Wednesday, 06 March, 2019 | Supplied by: Jet Technologies



Jet Technologies is launching an oxo-degradable plastic film for food and beverage packaging labels and laminates.

The films are made in the same way as traditional plastics, and on the same machinery, yet they contain an enzyme additive that accelerates degradation after disposal. As the film degrades it is converted into a food source for bacteria and fungi within a period of 1–2 years.

Oxo-degradable films run the same way as regular plastic films, with almost all grades of plastic — conventional polymers such as PE, PP and PET — able to be transformed into oxo-degradable versions of base label material as well as overlaminate gloss and matte finishes. The plastic is also compatible with recycling streams containing traditional plastic, so do not have a negative impact on recyclability.
