EarthFirst® UL 9µ / .36 Mil High Performance Sealant
Orlando, FL, April 8, 2016– Plastic Suppliers Inc. announced a breakthrough in plastic film making with the unveiling of an ultra-thin PLA sealant film for the flexible packaging industry. PLA (polylactic acid) is a biodegradable and compostable plastic derived from renewable sugar compounds found in corn starch, tapioca roots, sugar beets, sugarcane, and most plant life. Sealant films, when laminated to packaging films, bond to themselves to form hermetic seals and are used on a wide range of pouches, bags, and sachets used for flexible packaging. The new film, EarthFirst® UL, overcomes the machinability issues common with thinner, lighter gauge films and reduces the volumetric weight of common sealant films entering the waste stream from 75%-150% depending on the application. Demand for sealant webs in the US alone is 6-7 billion pounds annually.
Our mission is to provide high quality plastic films to the industries we serve in a cost effective manner, with excellent customer service and technical assistance. Our future depends upon our ability to offer plastics such as biopolymer films in a manner that does not harm our environment. Plastic Suppliers pledges to continue to offer these products as well as others that allow our customers the opportunity to succeed.
