EP-Flex™ Renew™ does not contain heavy metals or salts, can be transported in high heat and has a long shelf life. The film uses a water-based ink and is tinted green using an organic colorant. It will not begin to biodegrade until it enters a landfill, compost or other microbial environment. Complete biodegradation typically occurs within one to five years. Film is available in 8-, 10- and 12-in. wide rolls. Longer length bulk pack rolls are available.
