Bio-film strengthens trays

BASF's biodegradable Ecoflex was specifically developed for applications in flexible film, especially food packaging. The material can be used as a coating on expanded starch take-out trays and containers for protection against tears and fractures. The material possesses good wet strength and tear resistance which enables it to withstand fat, moisture and fluctuations in temperature. Ecoflex processes very similar to LDPE. It can be processed in the form of blown film, extrusion coating or cast film on conventional machinery.BASF Canada Inc. 800-267-2955
