Romax’ Biodegradable Plastics With EcoPure®

Plastics are used in a wide range of products in daily life. It is almost impossible to imagine life without many of the plastic items we use as a matter of routine every day. Plastic offers unmatched benefits of durability and safety and is used  to make disposable plates, bowls, cups, glasses, and more. These products, when manufactured to industry standards, are safe for use, look great, and are incredibly convenient too.

At the Fore of the Eco-Conscious Movement 

We at Romax are an eco-conscious company that has always run its business responsibly and safely.  We have over three decades of experience behind us and continue to test and research to make all our high-grade products eco-friendly. Romax is immensely pleased to announce that now, all our products are completely biodegradable. This has been made possible with the use of EcoPure® in our products.

This organic additive accelerates the biodegradation process, which reduces the burden on the environment. Biodegradable plastics are the answer to plastic waste. What makes them even more advantageous is that they are clean energy sources. We are a business-minded company that gives weight to our environmental responsibilities rather than just profits.

 Benefits of EcoPure®

The use of EcoPure® in our plastic products enables us to manufacture items that have all the properties as untreated plastic, in their physical appearance. It means you still get the most elegant, attractive, and durable plastic products. These additives do not affect:

  • Strength
  • Durability
  • Appearance
  • Texture
  • Impact resistance
  • Safety

Many of our customers wonder whether biodegradable quality affects the shelf life of these products. Many of our regular customers need these products in large quantities and make bulk purchases. They do not want any of these items to start to deteriorate when they are in storage like many biodegradable products do.

This is where EcoPure® is different. This formulation is such that it starts the biodegradation process only when it is exposed to microbes which are generally present in the landfills. In simple words, all Romax biodegradable products will only degrade at the end of their usable product life, if they aren’t recycled before that.

Understanding How EcoPure® Works

EcoPure® allows the microbes to create a thin biofilm that completely coats the plastic wastes. This biofilm forms on the treated plastics only when exposed to various bacteria and enzymes found in landfills. The microbes emit chemical signals that are part of their sensing process, which help to attract other microbes. This helps the microbes to effectively break down the polymer chain bonds, which accelerates the biodegradation process.

Standard compostable products aren’t designed to degrade in the landfill environment. Instead, they are designed to biodegrade in environments that have specific moisture and heat conditions. These conditions are achieved only at commercial composting facilities, which aren’t available in easily accessible locations.

More than 85% of plastics today end up in landfills, and this is a problem of immense proportions. It also means that when it comes to protecting the environment, no effort is too insignificant. Romax has always focused on working responsibly. Using EcoPure® additives in our excellent products has allowed us to take these efforts a step further and do our bit for our environment.

The Best Biodegradable Plastics

The standard EcoPure® additives are designed uniquely to work on various plastics such as PET, LDPE, EVA, HDPE, HIPS, Nylon, LLDPE, PP, GPPS, and Polycarbonate. For some of the Romax products, we also get custom-designed additives that are specially made to offer the best results with the plastics we use.

What our customers get are excellent products that have the same quality, durability, style, and appearance as before. They have a good texture and are safe for use. The only difference is that all the plastic products that you now purchase from Romax will be biodegradable.
