New Biodegradable Bubblewrap



Incorporating ‘REVERTE’ Oxo-biodegradable Additives

After more than 2 years in  development, Polycell is pleased and excited to announce the pending  release of our environmentally friendly ‘Oxo-B Eco Bubble’.
Oxo-B Eco Bubble incorporating ‘Reverte’ Oxo-biodegradable masterbatch  is the result of running numerous trials using a wide range of additives over a long period of time.
We settled on the use of Reverte as the end result in the degradation  process of our products far outweighs that of some like products that  currently exist in the market place.
Incorporating ‘Reverte’ Oxo-biodegradable additives into our  polyethylene resins will ensure that once Eco Bubble’s useful life is  over and it has been discarded into a rubbish tip or landfill it will  degrade (crack) and finally breakdown into smaller pieces with the aid  of UV light, oxygen and or  heat.

Once this has occurred, the smaller pieces are then subjected to  ingestion by microorganisms within the Rubbish heap or landfill and will finally biodegrade into CO2 & H2O plus biomass making Polycell’s  Oxo-B Eco Bubble the most environmentally friendly bubble in Australia & New Zealand.


Plastics incorporating Reverte will ultimately biodegrade into CO2, H2O  and biomass when discarded whether ending up in any viable landfill or  another viable part of the waste stream.
Compared with other oxo-degradable additives available on the market,  Reverte additives contain a two part control package which  differentiates it as follows.

  1. Firstly, the Reverte additive control package is photo-initiated  which means that the oxo-breakdown reaction doesn’t significantly begin  before the product is exposed to UV light and or heat. Reverte therefore gives an enhanced level of confidence compared to other  oxo-biodegradable additives, particularly with respect to ‘fit for  purpose’ product life times.
  2. Secondly, Reverte has secondary phase biodegradation promoters that include microcellulose powder which assist in the growth of microbial  colonies. This speeds up and facilitates the ultimate biodegradation of  the plastic following the initial oxo-breakdown.
