EcoSol bags and pouches were selected to be a part of a green initiative project conducted by Wright Patterson Air Force Base
EcoSol bags and pouches were selected to be a part of a "green" initiative project conducted by Wright Patterson Air Force Base

Cortec Corporation has introduced a new water soluble film technology, EcoSol, for a wide range of packaging applications.

EcoSol is a water soluble, biodegradable, polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH) film suited for production of water soluble PVOH bags, sachets, or pouches for packaging of e.g. detergents and cleaners, degreasers, concrete additives, pigments, biocides, water-treatment products and agricultural products.

The strong organic solvent resistance of EcoSol makes it possible to store not only dry powders, but also liquid products. The contemporary film has good tensile strength as well as strong tear and puncture resistance.

Mechanical properties of EcoSol packaging conform the normative of ASTM D 882-02 for Braking factor, Tensile Strength of break, Elongation and Yield Strength; It's Tear Strength is tested according ASTM D 1922-06a and Dart Drop Impact resistance - per ASTM D 1709-04.

After a few minutes of immersion at the specified temperature, the biodegradable film dissolves in water leaving a harmless, non-toxic, aqueous solution of polyvinyl alcohol, according to Cortec.

Once the liquid solution of PVOH comes into contact with common microorganisms, such as those found in water-treatment plants, conversion to CO2 and water takes place within about 30 days.

EcoSol bags were a part of a "green" initiative conducted by Wright Patterson Air Force Base where all products and processes were being evaluated for environmental impact.
