As result of consumer demand, Diamant Film Inc. (Markham, ON), a wholly-owned subsidiary of Diamant Art Corp., is selling its environmentally-friendly, 100% recyclable, food stretch film on the Internet.
Sporting the same name as its maker, the plasticizer-free and polystyrene-based Diamant film, contains no polyvinyl chloride (PVC) or chlorine, and adheres to virtually any food tray, the company said.
The material also has excellent elastic recovery, reduced water vapor permeability and requires 40% fewer materials to produce, compared with materials used in similar applications, the company said. Additionally, Diamant film’s low sealing temperature means savings in machine processing energy.
Consumers can purchase 2,000 ft of Diamant film in two different cutter box widths: 12-inches for $24 and 18-inches for $36. The cutter box is also 100% recyclable.
As well as the consumer retail market, Diamant is going after the US Military sector. Earlier this week, Diamant Film shipped some of its product to Presidential Holdings Inc., a company which has been given the exclusive right to sell, market and distribute Diamant film to the US Military.
"Presidential Holdings will now make the necessary provisions for the testing of the Diamant film by the US military," said Stefan Gudmundsson, CEO of Diamant Film. "We anticipate that this testing process will go as well as those undertaken by other clients of Diamant Film, and anticipate selling to the potentially massive military US military market in the future."
