Barrier films

Ceramis®-PLA biodegradable barrier films are made from the annually renewable resource corn starch Ceramis polyactic acid (PLA). These structures are fully biodegradable and compostable to meet the market's increasing demand for environmentally responsible packaging, the co. states. A silicon-oxide nanocoating combines high barrier protection against oxygen, water vapor and other gases with superior optical clarity and high gloss, the co. says.
