Flex America Inc: Flex America Inc: Biodegradable void fill
Pregis’ EP-Flex™ Renew™ is a high-performance low-density polyethylene air pillow film that is made with up to 50% less resin, 10% recycled content, and contains a proprietary organic additive that accelerates microbial biodegradation, without compromising recyclability.
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.
