Eco Wrap®: Compostable Industrial Strength Machine Grade Stretch Film

With patency still pending, Eco Wrap® according to Cortec® is the world’s first compostable industrial-strength machine grade stretch film. The new Eco Wrap® formulation expands Cortec’s line of existing commercially compostable films and bags and is an exciting breakthrough after many years in development, making commercially compostable machine grade stretch wrap a viable option for use in countless industrial applications.

EcoWrap® biodegradation process lasts up to 10 weeks.

The latest formula uses a certified compostable resin plus a tackifier additive to make an industrial-strength compostable stretch wrap that can be used on most standard automated stretch wrap equipment. This is a breakthrough for the industrial packaging and warehousing industries which rely heavily on automated stretch wrapping to prepare pallets of goods for storage, inventory, or shipment.

Cortec also declares that this product is intended to be composted in a commercial composting facility operated in accordance with
best management practices, as it is not suitable for backyard composting.

Eco Wrap® can be used anywhere a conventional stretch film is needed. Applications include but are not limited to the following:

• Agriculture bundling (e.g., hay bales and lumber)
• Corralling of goods for storage and shipment
• Pallet wrapping
• Luggage wrapping at airports
• Packaging construction materials
• Transporting furniture
