Biodegradable* Low-density polyethylene (LDPE) and linear low density polyethylene (LLDPE) are thermoplastic resins known for being able to resist warping.
LDPE and LLDPE are also known for resisting breaking under extreme temperature changes for a period of time and for being very flexible. Many products are created today using LDPE and LLDPE plastics, including:
- Six pack soda rings
- Plastic wrap
- Plastic trays
- General purpose containers
- Snap-on lids
- Plastic tubing
LDPE and LLDPE plastics are created with strong polymers that are very resistant to breaking. EcoPure® is compatible with LDPE and LLDPE plastic and does not affect the color, clarity or quality of a resin until after the product reaches a biologically active environment, such as a landfill. Contact Bio-Tec Environmental, LLC to see how EcoPure® can benefit your business and improve your environmental footprint.
* Biodegradation rates of EcoPure®-treated plastic materials measured according to the ASTM D5511 test method. Tests are generally conducted using 20% to 30% solids content; solids content in naturally wetter landfills range from 55% to 65%, while the driest landfills may reach 93%. Actual biodegradation rates will vary in biologically-active landfills according to the type of plastic used, the product configuration, and the solid content, temperature and moisture levels of the landfill.
