Our films strongly contribute to building powerful, environmentally-focused brands without compromising performance. The unique characteristics of our films make them suitable for packaging, personal hygiene products, and various industrial applications.
Improved Comfort and Personal Safety
BioBag films have a soft and silky surface which is very well suited for direct contact with the body. The natural breathability of our films allows moisture to evaporate, giving increased comfort and drier skin. These features are highly appreciated by consumers. Skin irritations and reddening are less frequent and less severe with BioBag films.
BioBag compostable films are hypoallergenic and are safe for skin contact. Our films are non-cytotoxic which means they are certified as a complete biological barrier to viruses and bacteria while still maintaining breathability!
The breathability of the film can also be tailored to a customer’s requirements. We offer several grades of breathability, ranging from 250 – 950 gr*30μm / m2* 24 h.
Excellent Mechanical Properties
The mechanical properties of BioBag technical films range from LDPE to HDPE, meaning that our films can be processed in standard converting lines and techniques without any major changes. BioBag technical films can be Flexo printed and colored with compostable masterbatch without any pre-treatment. Our films are excellent for lamination, have a good adhesion to paper and non-wovens, and are excellent barriers to oil and fats.
