GRAFE: Bio-Compound Paperlike

Innovative material makes it possible to produce foils with the same tearing properties lengthwise and crosswise

4_Bio_Compalen_PaperlikeThe GRAFE Group is introducing an innovation in the field of bio-plastics: „Bio-Compalen-Paperlike“ makes it possible to produce foils which can be torn in any given direction. The compound can also be used for HDPE and PP bottle extrusion. It has the additional benefit of being antistatic which reduces the attraction of surface dust.

Up until now, security labels could only be torn in the direction of extrusion. With this compound, the GRAFE Group makes it possible to produce foils with the same tearing properties lengthwise and crosswise. This feature provides a great advantage over other foils, particularly in the field of security labels. In addition, the foil displays paper-like haptics and excellent writability. It comes in white, like paper, but is available in other colors as well.

The LDPE bio-plastics compound can be made into flat or bubble-wrap and requires relatively low processing temperatures which improve the overall ecological balance. Aside from foil production, the compound can also be used for HDPE and PP bottle extrusion.
