Biodegradable stretch wrap

November 5, 2003


Cortec's Eco Wrap is a combination of compostable polyester film and a biodegradable cling coating that can be used with conventional stretch film equipment. The film's strength reduces the wraps needed for an application. According to Cortec, a 1.0 mil (25 micron) Eco Wrap can replace the traditional 1.6 mil (40 micron) palletizing film. After use, the wrap will biodegrade in a standard compost within a few months, turning into water and carbon dioxide.
