Cellulose Acetate films are made from renewable resources.

Unlike traditional plastic films, which are made from non-renewable resources like petroleum, Cellulose Acetate lamination films are made from wood pulp. Wood pulp is sourced from PEFC (Programme for the Endorsement of Forest Certification) certified managed forestry. This means that using Acetate films can help reduce our reliance on non-renewable resources and minimise our impact on the environment.

Cellulose Acetate films are biodegradable and compostable.

Certified as biodegradable to EN 13432, ASTM D6400 and TUV Austria OK Compost Home, 100% GM free material.
Another key benefit of Cellulose Acetate lamination films is that they are biodegradable and compostable. When disposed of in the right conditions, Acetate films can break down naturally into organic matter, without leaving behind harmful pollutants or microplastics. This makes Acetate films an excellent choice for businesses looking to reduce their environmental impact and support a circular economy.

Cellulose Acetate films are versatile and with the right application easy to use.

Despite their environmental benefits, some businesses may be hesitant to switch to Cellulose Acetate lamination films because of concerns about price, quality or ease of use. However, Cellulose Acetate films are a versatile material that can be used in a variety of applications, from printed media to luxury packaging and more. They are also easy to handle and can be laminated using standard laminating equipment. This material is not only durable and lightweight but also scratch-resistant, with a high gloss finish that enhances its aesthetic appeal. Additionally, it boasts print-receptive qualities, meaning that designs and images can be easily and vividly printed onto its surface.

Cellulose Acetate films reduce the use of harmful chemicals.

Cellulose Acetate is produced using a non-toxic solvent called acetic acid, which is much less harmful to the environment than the solvents used in the production of other synthetic materials. Additionally, acetate does not require the use of harmful chemicals used in the production of some natural fibres, like cotton, which can be treated with pesticides and herbicides.

Cellulose Acetate films offer a sustainable alternative to traditional plastic films.

In conclusion, Cellulose Acetate lamination films offer several key environmental benefits over traditional plastic lamination films. From their renewable resources to their biodegradability and ease of use, Cellulose Acetate films are an excellent choice for businesses looking to reduce their environmental impact and support a more sustainable future.
