Lactips has developed a solution that dissolves completely without leaving residue. It is superior to conventional plastics and has been recognised with environmental certifications (TÜV AUSTRIA) or can help earn them (ECOCERT/ECOLABEL/NORDIC ECOLABEL). Its solubility in both cold and hot water, its biodegradability, and its natural origin make it a high-performance, attractive, eco-friendly alternative that meets the needs of many industries while being good for consumers and the planet.
Laundry bags with water-soluble opening
Validated by hospital laundries, Lactips has designed a preventive product to make the handling of infected laundry safer and limit the risk of contamination in the laundry treatment chain. Pushed by the authorities and industry players, Lactips now markets the water-soluble opening system for laundry bags. Placed directly in the machine, the soluble opening disappears completely in contact with cold and hot water, freeing the linen from the bag during the washing cycle and without leaving sticky residues. Made from 100% natural ingredients, the Lactips material meets health and ecological challenges by reducing the use of single-use laundry and by favouring biosourced and fully biodegradable solutions to protect people and the environment.

Single-dose packaging for liquid detergent and solid detergent, in powder or tablet form
Very practical for saving time and preventing overuse of detergent, tablets in traditional packaging represent an environmental challenge in terms of the pollutant residue they leave behind, an issue of which consumers are increasingly conscious. In addition to dissolving beautifully, the Lactips material leaves no sticky residue behind. Its total biodegradability and its 100% bio-based composition have been recognised by environmental certifications.
Single-dose packaging for concrete additives and dyes
Essential components in modern concrete, additives and dyes packaged with the Lactips water-soluble material can be used safely and with greater precision, while complying with the highest environmental standards.
Stabilising film for embroidery
The Lactips material’s characteristics are adapted to the manufacturing of stabilising films used in the art or practise of embroidery. Its natural characteristics make it a material of choice for embroiderers of all stripes.
The Lactips material can be used to effectively and precisely plant seeds. Its bio-based and natural composition enable total biodegradability in the soil, supporting more environmentally friendly agriculture.
The Lactips material can be used to create temporary labels. Being print-ready, with no need for pre-treatment, the material offers an innovative, eco-friendly way to inform consumers or liven up any number of products.
