Protect Your Sensitive Electronics with Commercially Compostable Electrostatic Dissipating Film

Breakthrough Packaging Technology for Electronics Industry

January 22, 2021   by Cortec Corporation





We are pleased to announce that the new Eco Works® ESD is available from our Croatian bioplastics plant, EcoCortec®. This proprietary “green” Eco Works® ESD technology encompasses a range of formulations that include environmentally responsible and static dissipating features. These formulations can be customized to meet the precise needs of the customer. Designed with the environmental safety in mind, Eco Works® ESD contains renewable raw materials of up to 30% biopolymer, depending on the formulation, as well as anti-static properties, which reduce or eliminate static buildup.

Carefully created to replace traditional low density and high density films, Eco Works® ESD is suitable for industrial uses. It conforms to ASTM D6400 and EN 13432 standards for commercially compostable films. The exact time needed for Eco Works® ESD products to compost is dependent upon the conditions and activity of the disposal environment (temperature, soil quality, activity of microorganisms). When placed in a typical commercial composting environment, Eco Works® ESD films will compost within a matter of months. Since microorganisms are the means for degradation, Eco Works® ESD is shelf and curb stable and will retain its integrity until disposed of properly. Eco Works® ESD films can be curtailed to meet the requirements of customer’s application ranging from flexible to rigid films.
