M∙VERA® film grades

M∙VERA® B5010, B5012, B5017 and B5019 are versatile compostable film compounds from BIO-FED. They are designed for the film market where industrial composting is an end-of-life option. M∙VERA® B5010, B5012, B5017 and B5019 can be easily processed on conventional blown film extrusion equipment due to their excellent melt strength. These products are suitable for use in coextruded films and blends.

All grades were developed to meet current compostability standards. Vinçotte “OK compost” (EN 13432) was granted for all four products and BPI (ASTM D6400) certification was granted for M∙VERA® B5010 and B5012.

Applications

M∙VERA® film products are perfect for the manufacture of retail bags, organic and garden waste collection bags, industrial can liners, mulch film, labels and others.

Key product features
