The BiomeEP range offers enhanced print and adhesion characteristics, enabling excellent print quality and lamination at high production speeds. These potato and corn based resins give good strength, flexibility and tear resistance whilst being 100% biodegradable and compostable.
BiomeEP1 is a potato-starch based, GM-free resin with enhanced wet-out and print adhesion characteristics that enables fabulous print quality and lamination at high production speeds. BiomeEP1 can be stiffened by blending in BiomeEP2.
This corn-starch based polymer can be blended in small quantities with BiomeEP1 to produce a stiffer, stronger film without affecting biodegradability, compostability or printability. We recommend the use of BiomeEP2 with BiomeEP1 for high-speed, full-colour print applications or lamination films.
The certification of our resins helps fast track the application for certification of the finished product, providing no more than 5% of uncertified materials are added.
Our BiomeEP range is certified to the following thicknesses:
|EP1||EP1 / EP2|
|EN 13432 and ASTM D6400||180 microns||100 microns (maximum 15% EP2)|
|Vinçotte OK compost||180 microns||100 microns (maximum 15% EP2)|
