BIO-Zummit is a highly efficient Biodegradable-Enhanced* Clear or Green Tinted Stretch Film (Hand, Machine and Pre Stretch). It’s your best option for more sustainable packaging–made with a unique hi technology additive that promotes biodegradation by breaking apart the chain of the polymer, helping to reintegrate it into the ecosystem. In laboratory tests, biodegradation reached more than 60% in 607 days (less than 2 years) in a simulated soil environment. More information at this link and below.
*BIO-ZUMMIT Stretch Film is made with an additive shown to promote biodegradability. The formulation is certified by the SP Technical Research Institute of Sweden in accordance with industry standards SPCR141, Appendix 4, and ASTM D6954. In this test, the film was pre-oxidized and tested for biodegradability, with biodegradability reaching more than 60% in a simulated soil environment in 607 days (less than 2 years).

*CALIFORNIA LEGAL NOTICE. California prohibits the sale of plastic packaging labeled with the terms “degradable,” “biodegradable,” or other language that may imply the packaging will biodegrade or completely decompose in a landfill or other disposal environment. Bio-Zummit’s P-Life additive is shown to enhance biodegradability in a simulated soil environment, but has not been shown to decompose in landfill or other disposal conditions, or to break down 100%, and nothing on this website is intended to state or imply otherwise. This disclaimer applies to all sales in or into the State of California.
