Among this year’s innovations are new MATER-BI grades for fruit and vegetable bags with increased renewable material content and for compostable 5-layer barrier film
Novamont’s new R&D and engineering achievements are being showcased at K2019, the no. 1 fair for the plastics and rubber sector, which this year is focussing on the circular economy and sustainability.
A large number of innovations and new initiatives are on show at the Novamont stand at K2019
FILM FOR FRUIT & VEGETABLES BAGS
A new grade of Mater-Bi with a renewable raw material content of over 50% is now available for fruit and vegetable bags, meeting both industrial and also domestic compostable characteristics required by Italian, French and Austrian market regulations. Thanks to a collaboration with Novamont’s German partner Reifenhäeuser now lasting numerous years, during the fair it will be possible to visit Reifenhäeuser’s Troisdorf site, just a short drive from Dusseldorf, and directly witness extrusion tests on Mater-Bi fruit and vegetable bags. Customers will thus be able to see for themselves that the new Mater-Bi solution, with an increased percentage of renewable material content, can be used to produce film for high-quality bags with excellent mechanical strength and good transparency.
5-LAYER COMPOSTABLE FOOD PACKAGING FILM
Also at the Troisdorf site of its partner Reifenhäeuser, it will be possible for customers to observe the extrusion test on a 5-layer compostable film with barrier properties. This is an absolute first for the compostable food packaging sector, making it possible to combine compostability and gas barrier properties.
