Kromabatch introduces the new additive d2w for plastic packaging oxo-biodegradation. According to the producer, this additive is totally different from the bioplastics actually used to produce plastic bags that reduce the physical-chemical resistance of the final product, being not recyclable but only compostable and not useful for packaging that must keep unchanged the physical-chemical properties of the conventional plastic for the final purposes.
The additive d2w, atoxic and food approved, added only at 1-2% in conventional plastics (polyolefins) do not change the physical-chemical resistance of the final product, keep the final product recyclable and only after the choose life time (if accidentally littered in the environment) will go through a total process of oxo-biodegradation.
This technology perform a total respect of the resources (in first the product is recyclable) and the environment and is useful for all the plastic packaging (like cosmetic, detergency, food packaging) that must keep the physical-chemical resistance of the conventional plastic. The low dosage of the additive d2w in the conventional plastic, with no changes in the production process, results also not economically impactant on the cost of the final products.
