Cortec has announced that its patented EcoSol pouches are now available from its EcoCortec bioplastics plant in Croatia. This will enable prompt delivery of the custom pouches to European and Asian customers, said the company. The water-soluble, biodegradable polyvinylalcohol (PVOH) film is suited for various packaging applications.

Water-soluble PVOH bags, sachets, and pouches created from this film provide a convenient, safe, and economical delivery system for a range of products, including detergents and cleaners, degreasers, concrete additives, pigments, biocides, water-treatment products, and agricultural products.

The EcoSol film’s organic solvent resistance allows pouches and bags to be used for liquid products as well as dry powders. The film’s mechanical properties — tensile and tear strength and puncture resistance — enable its use in a variety of rigorous applications.

Products packaged in EcoSol can be thrown into a treatment area without removing the film.
