Unlike petroleum based plastic films and bags, NatureFlex™ films are based strongly on renewable resources. And while most bioplastics originate from renewable raw materials such as corn, potatoes or wheat, NatureFlex™ films are based on cellulose — the most abundant of all naturally occurring organic materials.
This cellulose is derived from renewable wood pulp that is sustainably harvested from FSC managed forests . NatureFlex™ films are certified ASTM D6400 for biobased content, and depending on the grade of film, the biobased content can vary from 90% to 99%.
High standards, high performance
NatureFlex™ films are suitable for packing a wide range of foodservice products in the rapidly expanding “food-to-go” market — from confectionery to bakery items. Resistant to grease, oil and fats, the films are microwave and conventional oven safe (recommended maximum 200’C 30 minutes).
Featuring novel heatseal resins on each side with a super wide range for outstanding machine performance, these static-free films can run on a wide variety of packaging machines, especially flow-wrap and overwrap formats.
They offer good gas barrier properties, and the coatings can be tailored to provide varying degrees of moisture barrier, helping to maximize shelf life of the wrapped product. They have a very good deadfold, and excellent transparency & gloss to enhance product presentation.
Commitment to sustainability
NatureFlex™ films are fully certified to the American (ASTM D6400) and European (EN13432) norms for 100% compostable packaging. Proven to be suitable for home composting, they will also biodegrade in a waste-water environment.
