EcoPure® in Color is a color concentrate that accelerates the biodegradation* of traditional, petroleum-based plastic products in a biologically active landfill.
EcoPure® is added during the manufacturing process, the manufactured plastic product will then biodegrade* at an accelerated rate when disposed of in a microbe-rich environment.
EcoPure® in Color can be blended to match your application and in different concentrations depending on your needs. EcoPure® technology in color concentrates offers your business an environmentally-sustainable solution to your color palette needs. Color concentrates are suitable for many plastic applications including:
- Consumer and industrial packaging
- Cosmetics packaging
- Personal care products
- Construction materials
- Safety products
- Medical products
- Automotive parts
* 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.
