ASTM: Biodegradable packaging film
Clarifoil’s biodegradable films can be used for small electronics as a laminated surface finish to the carton, as a high transparency window aperture, and as a tamper-evident label on the packaging.
Clarifoil is scuff resistant and available in a high-slip version, enabling high speed box manufacturing. To help protect brands against counterfeiting, the lamination film has special surface properties which enable fake packs to be detected by touch. Tamper evidence can be provided by use of Clarifoil digitally printable label films. Clarifoil’s base material is cellulose from wood pulp, a non-GM resource harvested from sustainable forests--the film has also gained EN13432 and ASTM D 6400 the European and US biodegradability accreditations.
