How much does biodegradable/compostable film cost?
Prices can fluctuate on this product, please contact our Sales team for current prices.

Isn't the biodegradable/compostable film opaque?
Although this product is often described as being more 'milky' in appearance than conventional films, you can still easily read through to the product that is being wrapped. This film has been successfully used to wrap magazines and newspapers.

Are there any alternatives to biodegradable/compostable film?
Yes there are additives we can incorporate into standard film to make it degradable.

What is the difference between degradable and biodegradable/compostable films?
Our biodegradable/compostable film breaks down into water, carbon gas and biomass. Degradable substrates break down after a longer period of time but because they are oil based never completely disappear.

How long do degradable and biodegradable films take to degrade?
Degradable products require UV exposure, heat, and moisture for the degradation process to start, whereas microorganisms degrade a biodegradable product. Degradable products take much longer to break down, usually 2-5 years depending on conditions, but this has no guarantees. Biodegradable films, if disposed of in a composting environment, will normally break down in around 90- 120 days, which complies with EN13432.

How long can I store degradable and biodegradable films for?
Storage of these products should not be a problem provided they are in the right conditions and in the original packaging. Our sales team would be happy to give you more information on this.
