EcoSol® film from Cortec is a water soluble, biodegradable, polyvinyl alcohol (PVOH) film ideally suited for packaging applications where dissolvability and biodegradability are needed. Products packaged in EcoSol can be thrown into a treatment area without removing the film. After a few minutes of immersion in water at the right temperature, the EcoSol film will dissolve into a harmless, non-toxic aqueous solution of polyvinyl alcohol, releasing the packaged product to do its work. The film’s polyvinyl alcohol byproduct will further degrade into simple carbon dioxide and water about 30 days after being exposed to common microorganisms such as those found in water treatment plants.
