iCushion™ OXO Biodegradable Air Pillow
The oxo-biodegradable air pillow film contains an additive that initiates chemical breakdown of the polymer chains much more quickly and completely than a standard film when in the presence of oxygen and heat or UV light. Once the polymer has been degraded to a low molecular weight, the molecular components can be consumed by micro-organisms. This act of biodegradation leaves only water, carbon dioxide, biomass and small quantities of minerals that will be assimilated into the ecosystem.
In addition to being reusable, one of the advantages of oxo-biodegradable films is the ease of recycling through mainstream recycling services. Unfortunately, not all products make it to recycling or even waste receptacles resulting in litter. An oxo-biodegradable air pillow that is discarded into the environment is much more likely to undergo the biodegradation process.
Exlfilmplus™ OXO Biodegradable Shrink Film
Exlfilmplus™OXO is an oxo-biodegradable shrink film containing an additive that initiates chemical breakdown in the presence of oxygen and heat or UV light. Exlfilmplus™OXO operates on all types of equipment and sealing technology, ensuring excellent performance across a wide range of applications. It's the perfect solution for customers looking for an environmentally preferred solution for shrink wrapping.
SuperFlex™ OXO and StretchFlex™ OXO Biodegradable Stretch Film
Now, the same great performance you've come to expect from IPG stretch films can be achieved with an envioronmentally responsible oxo biodegradable formulation (OXO). Our OXO-biodegradable polyethylene film contains an additive that initiates chemical breakdown more quickly and completely in the presence of oxygen and heat or UV light.
OXO-biodegradable films are available in clear or tinted green. Choosing OXO-biodegradable SuperFlex or StretchFlex stretch film with a green tint helps communicate the positive environmental impact that your company is making to the customer! Plus, you can differentiate your organization by being a recognized leader in green.
Genesys™ High Performance Stretch Film
Technologically advanced light gauge film reduces the amount of film needed by approximately 30% versus standard film, without compromising strength and quality. All Intertape stretch film products are classified as recycling category #4 for Low Density Polyethylene.
SuperFlex™ ProLite High Performance Hand-Applied Stretch Wrap
ProLite is a high performance, light gauge cast stretch film with superior strength so it requires less film to securely contain a load. Since ProLite is a light gauge film, it consumes fewer raw materials in the manufacturing process and the rolls are smaller which leads to a higher case count and overall reduction in packaging materials.
Central™ Water Activated Tape
Our patented biodegradable starch-based adhesive aggressively bonds to corrugated cartons, even in dusty or dirty environments. The paper tapes' backing is totally biodegradable, making them 100% recyclable and repulpable. In addition, to further help the environment, we offer our special Green Core brand of medium duty paper tape which contains a minimum of 50% recycled paper fibers.
