Bio-Based Flexible film
More users are becoming concerned about the climate and placing importance on sustainably produced products with minimum environmental impact, which is why POLIFILM PROTECTION has developed a new generation of bio-based protective films, made predominantly from renewable raw materials. Customers are then express their commitment to the environment by opting for these protective films.
Green PE Film
The keywords are “Green PE”: Green Polyethylene. Unlike regular polyethylene, this is not made from fossil-derived or petrochemical raw materials, but from biological raw materials like maize or sugar cane.
POLIFILM PROTECTION, the protective film expert, has gained in producing a new period of protective films that offer all the usual advantages of standard protective films, but with a carrier film consisting of 85 percent Green PE. But that’s not all.
Bio-based protective films
POLIFILM PROTECTION avoids using additives when producing its bio-based protective films, relying only on environmentally-friendly compositions for the application-specific adherent system. For example, one formulation consists of at least 50 percent original rubber.
Climate-friendly without compromising surface protection and processability
Thanks to their excellent adhesive properties and superior puncture, tear, and abrasion resistance, bio-based protective films from POLIFILM PROTECTION provide reliable protection for sensible and valuable surfaces, such as plastics, metals or glass throughout the production and following processing actions.
Less Carbon footprint in Bio-based
It can be prepared efficiently and allow the same UV protection as their natural polyethylene analogs.
At the same time, they boast an effective environment footprint: each tonne of Green PE locks away three tonnes of climatic carbon dioxide, cutting carbon outflows by around 60% compared to traditional PE films. Not to consider that bio-based protecting films from POLIFILM PROTECTION are fully recyclable.
For the first time, with our bio-based protective films, we are allowing our customer’s flexible film based on renewable raw materials, explains by Thomas Mähner, who, the head of development at POLIFILM PROTECTION. Anyone who uses those films to protect their products will also be promoting their own business’s carbon footprint and showing their customers their real commitment to climate action. They can rely on set quality and performance they have come to expect from our protective films: no ifs, no buts.
