EcoPaXX for sustainable polyamide film

High performance polyamide film is one of the latest applications benefitting from our bio-based thermoplastic, EcoPaXX™. This sustainable film outperforms polyamide 6 is several respects and was developed with our partner MF Folien. It’s available in various thicknesses - 30, 40 and 50 microns - for a wide range of industries including flexible food packaging, building & construction, medical, aviation and shipping.

Made from 70% tropical castor beans that don’t compete with the food chain, this unique polyamide 410 enables manufacturers to produce film with a lower carbon footprint: In fact, EcoPaXX is certified 100% carbon neutral from cradle to gate.

But that’s only half the story. EcoPaXX is also delivering performance consistent with the quality that MF Folien is renowned for across the industry. For example, EcoPaXX film is strong with a high puncture resistance, a lower moisture transmission rate versus polyamide 6 film, and a comparable oxygen barrier.

And with its distinctive shiny, silvery appearance, EcoPaXX is truly an attractive material in more ways than one…
