Mondi’s technical films business has created and introduced a water soluble film for the smart and convenient packing and dosing of powders, tabs and granulates. This film is dissolving completely in water, and is ideal for single doses of dry materials, such as dishwasher and laundry tabs or bath salts.
This film offers excellent sealing and deep drawing properties, provides an effective barrier to oxygen and is completely soluble even in cold water. Consumers are also protected from direct contact with the contents, which adds an extra layer of safety In addition to reducing overall packaging waste, the films are also considered to be biodegradable, non-toxic and non-inhibitory.
These films are particularly suited to the home and personal care market, a number of applications in other sectors are continuing to emerge. Agrochemical packaging, for fertilizer, sowing and disinfectants, for example, is a major area of interest, as is the building and construction sector – where the films can be used as liner for bags in the cement industry.
