Typical Basic Material properties of grade 900494
Certification of Compostability and Biodegrade
Biodolomer® T fulfills the requirements of the existing standards for compostable and biodegradable polymers because it can be degraded by microorganisms.
The biodegradation process in soil depends on the specific environment (climate, soil quality, population of microorganisms).
Food Regulatory Status
Biodolomer® T complies in its composition with the European foodstuff legislation for food contact, EU Regulation 10/2011/EC, and its amendments up to 2020/1245/EC of 02 September 2020 on plastic materials and articles intended to come into contact with food.
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® T is supplied as lenticular pellets in big bags. Temperatures during transportation and storage may not exceed 60 °C at any time. Storage time of unopened bags may not surpass 12 months at room temperature (23 °C).
Biodolomer® T has been developed for the conversion to extruded films from 0.3 - 8 mm thickness using a sheet extrusion process with subsequent thermo-forming operation. Typical applications are packaging film/sheets for trays, boards, and other thermoformed containers or articles. 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.
