Bio Degradable

Guru Laminators

Added Value Solution

The Insurance Policy

  • Biodegradable Oxo-biodegradable Plastic Technology.
  • Complete degradation 1-2 years after the end of the products' predetermind useful life span*.
  • If littered, degradation can take place within a few short months when exposed to hot climatic conditions.

Responsible use of Plastic

The Three R's

  • Reduce: Biodegradable reduce the burden of persistent plastic waste in the environment.
  • Reuse: Biodegradable based products can continue to be reused for a finite amount of time.
  • Reuse: Biodegradable based products can be recycled and made from recycled plastic polymers.

Globle Scenario

Guru Laminators

Countries across the globe are now embracing this technology as the practical solutio to growing problem of plastic pollution.

UAE has made it mandatory to use plastic conforming to UAE 5009:20009 (standard for Oxo-biodegrodable plastics) for all packaging purposes.
D2w is the largest selling additive the UAE and is recognized by the government.

Oxo-Biodegradable additive system

The Biodegradable Oxo-biodegradable technology is a masterbatch system that is added with the basic polymerresin during the manufacturing process.

  • No changes to extrusion process required.
  • No impact on line speeds of plant maintenance.
  • No requirement for special training for labour.
  • It is just a process of "adding degradability" to conventional plastics.

The Process

  • Polyolefin consists of long entangled molecular chains. There is a backbone of Carbon atoms to which Hydrogen atoms are attached.
  • The catalytec effect of the bio-degradible additive breaks these chains by gencration free radicals. Theses free radicals combine with the available oxygen atoms and create hydroperoxides - which are the precusors to full bio-degradation.
  • The resulting short chain hydroperoxides are available for consumption by micro-organisms.
  • After the degradation process the harmiess residues are CO2, H2O and Biomass.
