Looking for an eco-friendly alternative to replace the traditional pallet stretch wrap? Then you are on the right page now. PLA stretch film is a high strength biodegradable wrapping film that has outstanding stability but is able to break down in natural conditions, make an effort to save our planet, helping to reduce the world-wide issue of plastic waste. Reduce the impact on the environment while providing protection for your products. It protects wildlife habitats and keep a cleaner countryside.
Biodegradable plastics refer to a class of materials that are degraded by the action of naturally occurring microorganisms such as bacteria, molds (fungi) and algae. The ideal biodegradable plastic is a polymer material that has excellent performance, can be completely decomposed by environmental microorganisms after being discarded, and is finally inorganicized as an integral part of the carbon cycle in nature.
The PLA pallet stretch wrap is compostable, once disposed to landfill, biodegradation is accelerated approximately 90%+ faster than conventional stretch film, producing an organic matter (a natural fertiliser) without microplastics. Under the condition of industrial composting, it can be degraded within 180 days. Converted to water, carbon dioxide and other harmless substances.
The main component of the biodegradable material is corn powder + PLA + PBAT, PLA polylactic acid is made from a starch raw material raised using renewable plant resources such as corn. The starch raw material is saccharified to obtain glucose, and then fermented by glucose and certain strains to produce high-purity lactic acid, and then synthesize polylactic acid with a certain molecular weight by chemical synthesis. It can be decomposed into carbon dioxide and water by microorganisms in soil or seawater. When burned, it will not emit poisonous gas and cause pollution. It is a sustainable ecological fiber. PBAT, named polybutylene terephthalate-adipate, can be divided into bio-based biodegradable materials and petrochemical-based biodegradable materials according to the source of biodegradable plastics. PBAT belongs to petrochemical-based biodegradable plastics. It is very active in the research of degradable plastics and one of the best degradable materials in the market.
Landfill-biodegradable stretch wrap can be recycled or disposed of in the general rubbish bin. Protecting the environment as well as your products, please using polymers that are widely recycled around the world.
