Oxo-Degradable films

Oxo-Degradable can be described as accelerated biodegradation. Contrary to widespread assumptions, this is not a matter of pure decomposition into the smallest components of these films, but of decomposition into microscopically small components, in which ultimately only carbon dioxide, water and humus remain.
However, degradation occurs only under the influence of oxygen and UV light. The rate of decomposition depends on the environment conditions and can be controlled specifically via the resource. Therefore, compostability in the conventional sense is not possible because on the one hand the temperatures are too low for a fast decomposition and on the other hand the oxygen is missing in deeper layers.

Datasheet Oxo-degradable films

Single- and multilayer films as flat films, tubular films, semi-tubular films.

Physiological harmlessness or datasheet on demand.

Width:100 - 2000 mm flat film
400 - 2000 mm tube film
Thickness:from 0,030 mm
Finishing Possibilities: color pigmentation as required
Application:films for agricultural uses
films for gardening
technical films
packaging films

Basically, it is possible to produce the films on both sides pre-treated for printing (full surface or segments), dyed, needled (full surface or segments), perforated and/or monochrome black with marking prints.

All specifications are approximate and always depend on the product-specific requirements.

For special requirements, the manufactured films can be extruded as a parent roll and then cut over a slitter roll (with excellent winding or excellent roll mirror).


For years Folietec Kunststoffwerk AG has been participating in a sustainable network of PRS's pallet reuse system. This involves the controlled reuse and sharing of CP pallets for the European polymer industry. It makes an effective contribution to environmental protection and the careful use of resources as well as to reducing carbon dioxide emissions and minimising packaging waste.
Folietec Kunststoffwerk AG takes part in the IK initiative “Zero Pellet Loss” and created technical and organisational framework in its operations in order to avoid the spillage of pellet and to ensure that any pellet spilt is not released into the environment. Besides we provide training to our employees in the prevention and, should the situation arise, effective elimination of plastic pellet spillage.
