iCushion™ OXO Biodegradable Air Pillow

The oxo-biodegradable air pillow film contains an additive that initiates chemical breakdown of the polymer chains much more quickly and completely than a standard film when in the presence of oxygen and heat or UV light.  Once the polymer has been degraded to a low molecular weight, the molecular components can be consumed by micro-organisms.  This act of biodegradation leaves only water, carbon dioxide, biomass and small quantities of minerals that will be assimilated into the ecosystem.

In addition to being reusable, one of the advantages of oxo-biodegradable films is the ease of recycling through mainstream recycling services.  Unfortunately, not all products make it to recycling or even waste receptacles resulting in litter.  An oxo-biodegradable air pillow that is discarded into the environment is much more likely to undergo the biodegradation process.

Air pillow technology offers source reduction benefits and fuel consumption savings versus paper and loose fill.



Genesys™ High Performance Stretch Film

Technologically advanced light gauge film reduces the amount of film needed by approximately 30% versus standard film, without compromising strength and quality. All Intertape stretch film products are classified as recycling category #4 for Low Density Polyethylene.

Central™ Water Activated Tape

Our patented biodegradable starch-based adhesive aggressively bonds to corrugated cartons, even in dusty or dirty environments.  The paper tapes' backing is totally biodegradable, making them 100% recyclable and repulpable. In addition, to further help the environment, we offer our special Green Core brand of medium duty paper tape which contains a minimum of 50% recycled paper fibers.
