Biodolomer® F 900387
Biodolomer® F 900387 is a biodegradable biomaterial for film blowing applications. It is developed for the production of bubble wrap and similar products. Biodolomer® F 900387 certified for home composting..
It is basically a compound of a biodegradable aliphatic aromatic copolyester (PBAT), minerals, and plant based oils.
Biodolomer® F offers a great down gauging potential needed for thin film applications.
Biodolomer® F exhibits the following properties:
• Processing temperature between 150 - 175 Celsius
• Excellent process-ability on conventional blown film lines
• Down gauging to 10 μm possible, typical thicknesses: 18 - 120 μm
• Good mechanical properties
• Wet strength (e. g. Organic waste bag applications)
• Excellent welding properties
• Decor printable by water based flexo printing
• Certified biodegradable at ambient temperatures up to 70 μm
• Ready to use grade
Trials are always recommended to assess the quality of the final product.
Typical Basic Material properties of grade 900387
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. Biodolomer® creates no microplastics.
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, 615 , and 623.
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® F has been developed for the conversion to flexible films using the blown film process. In view of numerous factors influencing the 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 proper functionality of the articles made from Biodolomer® F.
