Secure a share of today’s greener business by introducing biodegradable components to your portfolio. We’ve just increased the PLA label face options available in our range of industrially compostable films, and we also have a biodegradable adhesive. Cultivate the shoots of new business – with the RafBio range.
The two films in the RafBio range are fully compliant with EN13432, the European standard for compostable packaging.
The cellulose RafBio films in Clear, White and Silver are made from renewable wood-pulp sourced from managed plantations. Resistant to grease, oil and fats, they provide good gloss and transparency.
Our RafBio PLA films in Clear and White are derived from corn starch. PLA film has good printing properties, excellent scratch resistance and high transparency and gloss. These faces have good resistance to fat, oils and alcohol and are suitable for direct food contact.
Introducing the RP 55 Bio adhesive – also available with papers
The RP 55 Bio adhesive has been carefully formulated to include a high content of renewable (non-fossil derived) materials, and like our bio films is certified to the European compostable packaging standard EN13432.
RP 55 Bio is available with our RafBio and RafBio PLA films as well as two papers:Raflacoat Plus and Thermal ECO 300. Most papers can be classed as chemically unmodified materials of natural origin, so can be accepted as biodegradable without testing.
We also offer RP 37 with the RafBio films. This adhesive isn’t biodegradable, but if the adhesive constitutes less than 1% of the packaging it’s considered negligible under EN 13432. RP 37 provides the added advantages of excellent clarity and water resistance.
