Supplier: PACKSPEC Packaging Solutions

EPI TDPA® Degradable Additive is added in proportion to a normal resin formulation, and will act like a molecular clock reliably degrading the film in months or years depending on what the requirements are.

Features of PACKSPEC Degradable Film:

  • TDPA® contains no controversial chemicals, or any components requiring special regulatory approval. TDPA® technology is food contact approved (FDA and SCF).
  • A critical advantage of TDPA® technology is that it does not alter the physical or performance properties of plastic during it’s useful life. TDPA® is indistinguishable in look, weight and performance from conventional plastic.
  • TDPA® technology can be incorporated into most commodity resins, LDPE, LLDPE, HDPE, PP and PS.
  • Once TDPA® activates degradation, the plastic becomes brittle (experiencing a loss in tensile strength and elasticity), breaks up into small pieces, then biodegrades into carbon dioxide, water and biomass.
  • By specially formulating the blend, breakdown can be controlled to occur as soon as 6 months or as far out as 6 years after manufacture.
  • Film is generally supplied in (SWS) Single Wound Sheet roll format for automated form, fill and seal, or over wrapping applications.
