Developed for food and retail-goods packaging markets in the U.S. and Canada, Toray’s new Ecodear compostable, bio-based films were featured at Pack Expo. The thin, bi-axially oriented films are manufactured with polylactic acid (PLA) resin and include a metallized heat-sealable film that delivers moisture and oxygen barrier protection and a clear film that can be used as an inner seal layer or a printweb. Ecodear films can also be used for labels and meet ASTM D6400 standard specifications for compostable plastics.
