Many words have already been written both for and against the usage of PVC, more than
enough to justify and promote its use on a large scale. It is therefore not our aim, at this stage, to re enter the debate to justify the use of PVC.
We consider this an important contribution to the defence of our ecosystem, tangible evidence of our continuous and consistent commitment to research and development to high performance products, not only from a technical and economic point of view, but also from a social and environmental one.
PVC compares very favourably with all other plastics used in our field, eco-friendly material meets all the criteria which define a product as being „eco consistent” and totally degradable.
This has been achieved without altering the physical and mechanical properties which our industry values so highly.
How does it work?
If our eco-friendly material is left in organic compost, it degrades.
The additive accelerates the degradation of treated plastics in microbe rich environments, such as a biologically active landfill. It attracts microbes to the product allowing them to colonize on the surface of the plastic. Once the microbes have colonized on the plastic, they secrete acids that break down the polymer chain. Microbes utilize the carbon backbone of the polymer chain as an energy source and utilize plastic as food.
Visually plastic card made of ecological material does not differ from cards made of PVC, that is why we can produce of it folowing cards:
• business cards
• loyalty cards
• gift cards
• club / membership cards
• lugagge tags
