Water soluble films
The water-soluble and fully biodegradable PVOH films are versatile due to their high strength and resistance to oil and grease. They also excel in their positive hygienic properties as well as their economical dosage. Due to their solid material properties, the non-toxic and skin-friendly films are ideal for use in food packaging. Their decomposition both in waste incineration and in the sewage treatment plant (decomposition by microorganisms) to CO2 and water is residue-free and therefore extremely environmentally friendly.
