Lactips offers a material whose creation and disposal are approved by regulations and that is non-toxic for the environment.
Thanks to its 100% bio-based and natural composition, the Lactips material complies with the new European Union regulation on single-use plastics, Directive (EU) 2019/904. It is categorised as a single-use, non-plastic solution. Thus, it is not recognised as a plastic material under Commission Regulation (EU) No. 10/2011 of 14 January 2011. It complies with existing and upcoming regulations on microplastic. Considered a natural polymer under the EU REACH regulation, it does not fall under microplastic restrictions or labelling and declaration requirements.
The film’s compatibility has already been demonstrated in the food and cosmetics industries through numerous tests performed by the Lactips development centre and independent laboratories.
In practical and operational terms, the Lactips material can be transformed through classic injection-moulding procedures. Thus, it does not require investments in new machinery. It can be fully integrated into existing industrial processes to meet the environmental goals of eco-friendly companies.
