IPC is proud to offer customers Biodegradable Poly Bags including their zippers, as an option for a Green Solution in your operation. These bags and zippers are made from an innovative material which doesn’t require heat, light or mechanical stress to degrade. Plus, it doesn’t contain heavy metals unlike most degradable products. Products made from this material will biodegrade in any biologically active environment such as landfills, compost piles and even buried in or littered on the ground. Whereas other materials are biodegrading either anaerobically or aerobically, this is certified by the manufacturer to biodegrade as well. Even better this material is transparent and possesses all of the performance properties found in standard polyethylene. There is no special post-use handling required either.
Equally important is where it won’t degrade – warehouses, store shelves and in the home. Degradation begins at time of disposal, not before.
These biodegradable poly bags with a biodegradable zipper are a perfect solution for applications that generate large amounts of polyethylene waste, including:
- Trash bags
- Can liners
- Furniture bags
- Box liners
- Pallet covers
- Industrial – parts packaging
- Toy packaging
These bags have passed the following tests:
- ASTM D5209 “Standard Test Method for Determining the Aerobic Biodegradation of Plastic Materials in the Presence of Municipal Sewage Sludge”
- ISO 14855 / ASTM D5338 “Standard Test Method for Determining Aerobic Biodegradation of Plastic Materials under Controlled Composting Conditions”
- ASTM 5511 “Standard Test Method for Determining Anaerobic Biodegradation of Plastic Materials Under High-Solids Anaerobic Digestion Conditions”
