Compostable masterbatches with TUV OK COMPOST certification
Ampacet BioRange+ and BioRange+ HOME masterbatches, designed for compostable plastic applications, comply with TUV OK Compost INDUSTRIAL & TUV OK Compost HOME requirements for industrial & domestic composting end of lives.
White, Black, Color & Additive BioRange+ masterbatches, compatible with EN 13432 industrial composting standard, are designed for use with Starch/PBAT/PLA blends or PLA based compostable end-products. BioRange+ HOME white and color masterbatches should be used with home compostable blends such as Starch/PBAT to manufacture end-products that end their lives in domestic composting units.
Compostable plastic applications include carrier bags, trash bags, food ware, coffee capsules, tea bags, fruit/vegetable stickers in the food & retail industries, as well as plant pots & mulch film in the horticulture/agriculture market.
As TUV states, packaging or products featuring the OK compost INDUSTRIAL label are guaranteed as biodegradable in an industrial composting plant; OK compost HOME guarantees complete biodegradability in a home garden compost heap, in the light of specific requirements as detailed by the TUV.
