EP-Flex Renew Air Pillows

Renew air pillow film contains a special blend of ingredients that allow for microbial biodegration. EP-Flex Renew is tough, 100% recyclable and contains pre-consumer recycled content. This eco-friendly air pillow uses a proprietary additive in the manufacturing process, attracting microbial communities found in t landfills and composting environments to accelerate product biodegradability.

EP-Flex Renew is an environmentally responsible option because unlike other environmental plastics in the marketplace, it contains no heavy metals or salts, can be transported in high heat and has a longer shelf like than competing options. Heat, light and oxygen are not required for EP-Flex Renew to begin biodegrading in a landfill.

How does it work?

  • A small amount of bio-additive is compounded with standard EP-FLex film.
  • The bio-additive attaches itself to the molecular polymer chains that form the plastic so that it is evenly dispersed through out the plastic.
  • After plastic is disposed of in a landfill or compost, microbes attach to the additives in the plastic, digesting and breaking down the structure into biomass and carbon dioxide or methane.
  • Depending on microbial environment, complete biodegradation can occur in as little as 440 days.
  • Compliant with ASTM D5511-02: Anaerobic biodegradation of plastic materials under high-solids anaerobic digestion conditions. This test simulates a landfill environment.
  • Compiant with ASTM D5338: Aerobic biodegradation of plastic materials under controlled composting conditions. This test simulates a composting environment.
Features and BenefitsResults
Special bio-additive helps address environmental concerns.- Film biodegrades
- Reduces solid wastes in landfills.
- Extend the projected useful life of landfills.
AirSpeed pillows are an environmentally responsible choice compared to peanuts, crumpled craft paper, molded foam and air pillow alternatives; recyclable category #4.- Less plastic diverted to the waste stream.
- 20%-50% less resin content than alternative films-overall source reduction in packaging materials used.
- Bulk pack option eliminates cartons and reduces the amount of pallets and cores used.
