Klockner Pentaplast: Rigid thermoplastic starch (TPS) films for food, retail packaging

Pentafood® Biofilm™ and Pentaform® Biofilm™ from Klöckner Pentaplast in partnership with Plantic Technologies Limited are rigid thermoplastic starch (TPS) films for food and retail products that help packagers meet sustainability goals.
Designed for thermoformed trays, shelf-ready displays, and insert trays in secondary packaging these TPS films are derived from annually renewable high-amylose starch, which provides brand owners with a packaging material of non- genetically modified origins.  Provides a high renewable-resource content of 85-90% by weight.  Compostable in professionally managed facilities and will biodegrade completely in home composting, soil burial, and water. Provide excellent barrier for flavor and odor, as well as grease resistance. Available in standard colors (natural, white, brown, gold, purple, and black) with a gloss/gloss surface.   Pentafood® Biofilm™ TPS films are compliant with all applicable FDA standards for direct food contact.
