What is the ideal storage conditions needed for AM-WSF?
At the time of Storage, make sure to avoid extreme humidity and temperature. Cold storage or very low humidity
can cause the film to become brittle & may tear like paper. WSF bags, under normal conditions, should be kept in
their re-sealable bag. Pl. always take proper care to not to allow the film to become wet. Ideal storage conditions
are 10° C. ~25° C. temperature with 45%~75% RH relative humidity.
Laundry bags are expected to contain a maximum of 12kg (26 lbs) of linen when loaded into a supporting outer
transport bag. Chemical packages are typically up to 10kg, though there is not theoretical reason for higher
loadings given correct filling and handling.
What is the difference between biodegradable and compostable?
Biodegradable means that the products break down through a naturally occurring microorganism, such as fungi or bacteria over a period of time. Biodegradable products are usually made from plant or animal sources. Biodegradable products can create methane, a greenhouse gas with 62 times the Global Warming Potential of carbon dioxide when dumped into landfills. Also, biodegradable waste may contain toxins.
Compostable plastics mean that the products must be able to break down into carbon dioxide, water, and biomass at the same rate as paper. Also, the broken down product should not produce any toxic material and should be able to support plant life. Compostable products are usually made from plant materials. Because biodegradable is used loosely with no legal enforced definition, Compostability is more desirable for disposable products.
100% compostable means that “AMTREX” Plastic products are fully renewable. It can be converted back to monomer and polymer, or, it can be biodegraded into water, carbon dioxide and organic materials. “AMTREX” Plastic is much more sustainable than regular petroleum made plastic.
What is the average cost of “AMTREX” Compostable Plastic bags compared to regular plastic bags?
The average cost depends on the size, thickness, printing matter & type of the order. Yet the cost compared to regular plastic products is becoming more competitive as the interest in biodegradable product rises.
