A DISRUPTIVE SOLUTION
FOR THE PLASTIC POLLUTION
Plastic is a cheap, versatile, useful material that is an essential part of our everyday life. But awareness for its challenges and therefore demand for alternative solutions is rising.
Currently available alternatives, based on alternative materials, recycled plastics or conventional bioplastics, pose challenges for certain product applications or the environment, if they are not correctly disposed of.
traceless offers an innovative sustainable solution as it has been developed for the biological cycle with all impact indicators in mind!
Using our innovative, patent pending technology we are able to manufacture traceless in three different materials: a flexible film, a moldable plast and a sprayable solution for coatings.
Our film has mechanical properties comparable to PLA and can be casted, dyed, printed and heat-sealed. It has a tensile strength comparable to LDPE and PLA and its elasticity can be engineered with natural, non-harmful softeners for flexibility.
Our hard plastic alternative has mechanical properties comparable to LDPE and can be extruded, injection moulded, printed, dyed and more. It already has a relatively high elasticity without additives, so that no further softeners are needed. In addition, it has a relatively high tensile strength, comparable to PLA.
Our protective coating can be casted or coated, for example on paper or cardboard. It has vast application potential as it is storage-stable, heat-sealable, water-repellent and non-toxic.
BEYOND THE SCALE
In terms of sustainability, traceless materials are one step ahead of conventional bioplastics. They‘re not only bio-based, but even based on biological residues.
For biodegradation, they don‘t need industrial composting conditions, but are 100% home compostable.
Last but not least, produced on an industrial scale, traceless is competitively priced with virgin plastics in the EU.
The key for traceless' excellent compostability lies in its natural ingredients: Unlike many bioplastics, our materials are not based on polymers that are chemically modified or synthetically polymerized.
Instead, we simply make use of natural polymers - Those polymers that nature has already designed itself. That's why microorganisms out there already know how to handle them, and can easily digest them.
Depending on the conditions and the thickness of the material, composting takes only 2-9 weeks.
