Biodolomer® F 900186
Biodolomer® F50 is a biodegradable biomaterial.
It is basically a compound of a biodegradable aliphatic aromatic copolyester (PBAT) and PLA.
Biodolomer® F offers a great down gauging potential
needed for thin film applications, like wrap film.
Bidolomer® I is made from renewable resources.
Biodolomer® F50 exhibits the following properties:
Processing temperature between 155 - 175 Celsius
Excellent process-ability on conventional blown film lines
Down gauging to 16 μm possible, typical thicknesses: 18 - 120 μm
Good mechanical properties
Excellent welding properties
Decor printable by water based flexo printing
Certified biodegradable up to 120 μm
Ready to use grade
Trials are always recommended to assess the quality of the final product.
Typical Basic Material properties of grade 900186
Certification of Compostability and Biodegrade
Biodolomer® F fulfills the requirements of the existing standards for compostable and biodegradable polymers because it is degraded by microorganisms. The biodegradation process in soil depends on the specific environment (climate, soil quality, population of microorganisms).
Food Regulatory Status
Biodolomer® F is one of the few compostable polymers, which complies in its composition with the European food stuff legislation for food contact, EU Directive 10 / 2011 / EC with amendment 2023/1442 and US food contact notification for the main components:
FCN 2032 and 1926.
Specific limitations and more details are given on request. The converter or packer has to check the suitability of the article for the application.
Form supplied and Storage
Biodolomer® F is supplied as lenticular pellets in 1 t big bags. any time. Storage time of unopened bags is at least 12 months at room temperature (23 °C).
Biodolomer® F50 has been developed for the conversion to flexible films using a blown film. In view of numerous factors influencing functionality and shelf life of Biodolomer® films and finished articles made thereof the production parameters have to be tested by the converters before utilization. Additionally sufficient field tests are required to ensure the right functionality of the articles made from Biodolomer® F50.
