This bio-based packaging is 100% compostable and has similar mechanical and shelf-life properties as ordinary plastic. These substitutes are having same mechanical properties as most ordinary plastics, serving the needs of both consumers and manufacturers. Consumers enjoy the same level of packaging functionality while manufacturers can be assured that the bio-plastics meet all their manufacturing requirements to be adaptable to their current packaging and production practices. Tipa has developed this technology and they offers a range of bioplastic solutions; coextruded transparent and high-transparent or coated/metalized cast films, which are sealable and printable on both sides or laminated as printing, typically used for packaging of fresh produce, bakery, grain-mill products or bags. Their barrier films are characterised by their improved barrier performance comparable to alternative market plastics.
