EcoSol is a water soluble, biodegradable, polyvinylalcohol (PVOH) film ideally suited for many packaging applications. Water soluble PVOH bags, sachets, or pouches created from this film provide a convenient, safe, and economical delivery system for a wide range of products; including detergents and cleaners, degreasers, concrete additives, pigments, biocides, water-treatment products, agricultural products, and others. EcoSol film has excellent organic solvent resistance, which allows EcoSol pouches and bags to be used not only for dry powders, but also for liquid products. EcoSol offers very good mechanical properties: tensile strength, tear strength, puncture resistance. These properties allow EcoSol to be used in a wide variety of rigorous applications.
EcoSol expands Cortec’s line of biodegradable materials: after a few minutes of immersion at the specified temperature, EcoSol dissolves in water leaving a harmless, non-toxic, aqueous solution of polyvinyl alcohol. Once the liquid solution of PVOH comes into contact with common microorganisms, such as those found in water-treatment plants, conversion to carbon dioxide and water takes place within about 30 days.
PACKAGING & STORAGE
EcoSol is packaged in barrier film. Keep in dry storage area at 20-22°C (68-72°F).
Shelf life of the product is 2 years, if barrier film is kept intact.
