Taghleef Industries has unveiled bio-based and biodegradable films that meet the principles of circular economy.
The polylactic acid Nativia D813 is claimed to be the first bio-based and biodegradable I-IML film on the market and is designed to run on reel-to-sheet offset printing machines. It is able to achieve good printing speed and excellent ink adhesion, making it appealing for the growing bioplastic-based container market.
Another film that meets the principles of circular economy is the ultra-clear floatable Shape360 TDS, a low-density shrink sleeve label film that minimizes the impact on PET recycling systems and reduces the weight of the label. The shrink curve guarantees up to 65 percent shrinkage.
Taghleef will share programs that support sustainability, including the use of post-consumer recycled content and non-fossil raw material sources, at the upcoming Labelexpo Europe in Brussels.
