earth 2 earth compostable

product1

earth2earth® Compostable is our biodegradable film product. Due to its outstanding mechanical strength earth2earth® Compostable offers a great down gauging potential needed for thin film applications like garbage bags, organic waste bags, T-shirt bags etc.


Our new earth2earth® Compostable exhibits the following properties compared to PE-LD:

  • · High strength, low-medium stiffness and high failure energy (dart drop)

  • · Good processability on conventional blown film lines, e.g. for PE-HD, PE-MD

  • · Down gauging to 8 µm possible, typical thicknesses: 10 – 120 µm

  • · Broad sealing window required for sealing layers of multi-layer film structures

  • · Weldable and printable in 8 colours by flexo printing

  • · Leaves only carbon dioxide and water and leaves NO harmful residues after degradation.

  • · Contains no polyethylene

  • · No Chemical additive to speed degradation

  • · Performs just like normal plastic bags but in a new innovative environmentally friendly way.

  • · Heat Distortion temperature is 75 °C ( hot food ok)

  • · Waterproof

  • · Shelf life of two years



earth2earth® Compostable fulfils the requirements of the European standard DIN EN 13432 for compostable and biodegradable polymers, because it can be degraded by micro-organisms. The biodegradation process in soil depends on the specific environment (climate, soil quality, population of micro-organisms). The advantages for the customer concerning the certification of his products according to EN 13432 are:

  • · Biodegradable according to EN 13432

  • · Biobased according to ASTM D 6866
