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 PAS2050 carbon neutral certified.
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.
How Does Polyair™ Work?
Rather than being oxy-degradable, our new Polyair™ material is bio-based. Polyair™ is made from sugar cane waste, and it’s the process of photosynthesis as the plant grows that makes this product carbon neutral and the raw material remain 100% recyclable.
The sugar cane actively captures CO2 from the atmosphere, while at the same time releasing oxygen – making this material not just green, but proactively green.
Why Choose Polyair™?
Our exclusive Polyair™ material can be chosen as an alternative to regular polythene, offering your company the opportunity to improve your green credentials, meet legislative requirements and deliver improved environmental solutions. Polyair™ is fully carbon neutral, and in terms of practical use, the materials are identical to alternatives made from fossil fuels, except they are fully recyclable.
Polyair™ can be used across our full product range of pallet covers – plain or printed, top sheets, bags, pallet wrap and liners, giving you a significantly greener, environmentally friendly option.
Contact our helpful sales personnel to find out how you can benefit from switching to Polyair™, based on your current product specifications.
