Compostable/biodegradable films

December 1, 2007


Made from a blend with a high percentage of polylactic acid, Ampac Flexibles’ Apex 3000 SF renewable compostable/biodegradable films pass the ASTM D 6400 standard and are FDA-compliant for food contact. Designed for vertical form-fill-seal applications, the structure seals to itself. The films are naturally opaque; colorants can be added for marketing differentiation or printed via rotogravure or flexography. Available in one or multiple layers, the films can be used for cereal bag liners, organic snack packaging, etc.
