Ecobar is a specially engineered extrusion coating designed to impart to special oxy-degradation propertieswithout impacting productivity or product integrity. Ecobar can deliver similar properties to conventional polyolefins but will oxy-biodegrade within a prescribed time period as soon as six months.
Total degradation of polymer can be tailor made to a defined time line
Mechanisms that trigger this process are heat input, sunlight (UV light) and mechanical stress.
After use, when the product is disposed of in landfills, compost sites, arable land, or inadvertently as litter, these products undergo oxidative degradation much more rapidly than ordinary products.
Molecules in the presence of moisture, micro-organisms, oxygen and soil will ultimately biodegrade to such a fine level, theycanbe consumedby micro-organisms (per ASTM D6954-04)
