WELLS PLASTICS OXO BIODEGRADABLES

Wells Plastics offers a range of biodegradable additives.

The term ‘Oxo-biodegradable’ is a hybridisation of two words, oxidation and biodegradable.
It clearly defines a two step process initiated by the Reverte additive to degrade the polymer chain (break up) and make it available for biodegradability within the environment when a treated item has finished its useful life.

Reverte is designed specifically to address the issue of plastic waste that gets into the environment and cannot be realistically collected. Reverte has been used in numerous PE and PP applications for many years and now, as a further advance in oxo-biodegradable technology, Wells Plastics is offering a new grade of Reverte for PET film.
Since most of flexible plastic packaging has a layer of PET or MET PET film, this new development is expected to revolutionise the fight against flexible plastic packaging litter around the world.

Recently, Wells has completed testing of multilayer laminates made of PET, BOPP, MET PET, MET BOPP, PE films incorporation Reverte in all the layers.
