Bio-based, carbon neutral

Recently launched for the UK market, our exclusive new Polyair™ product is the only 100% recyclable, carbon neutral material currently available.

Polyair™ is truly the greenest material we know of. When integrated with our Polylite™ solution, this product will not only improve your green credentials and dramatically reduce your carbon footprint, but will – as importantly – provide a commercially viable alternative to standard polythene.

Originally Polyair™ was an oxy-degradable polythene developed at a time when everyone thought that oxy-degradable products were the optimum solution. This view has now changed: there is little benefit in a material which degrades completely in two or three years – the atmosphere simply turns it into flakes and particles.

Frequently Asked Questions

The sugar cane plant captures CO2 from the air during photosynthesis and releases oxygen. This makes PolyairTM carbon neutral and bio-based.

Originally Polyair™ was oxy-degradable plastic, but now it is bio-based and fully recyclable. Oxy-degradable plastic breaks down into flakes and particles which is less environmentally friendly.
