Reverte™ Oxo-Biodegradable

Reverte™ is an innovative product line of resin additives used globally to degrade plastics. Reverte™ can be used in consumer packaging and other applications including Agricultural mulch films, Industrial film, Food Packaging (PE, BOPP, and CPP) and Shopping Bags (HDPE, LDPE).



Enviromentally Friendly

  • Plastics incorporating Reverte™ will ultimately oxo-biodegrade into CO2, H2O and biomass when properly discarded.
  • Compared to other oxo-biodegradable additives currently available on the market, Reverte™ additives contain a unique two part control package which enhance its performance in 2 ways:
    1. additives control package is photo-initiated which mean that the oxidative reaction doesn't significantly begin before the product is discarded and exposed to UV light and/or heat. Reverte™ therefore gives an enhanced level of confidence versus other oxo-biodegradable additives, particularly with respect to "fit-for-purpose " product life.
    2. uses a unique prodegradant package to controllably reduce the length of the polymer chains.
    3. has secondary phase biodigestion promoters which assist the growth of microbial colonies. This speeds up and facilitates the ultimate biodigestion of the plastic following its initial oxidation.

The above are unique to Reverte™, the control packages and secondary phase biodigestion promoters are particularly invaluable in situations where little or no UV light or heat is available since in these circumstances the Reverte™ oxo-biodegradation process is more likely to continue.

  • Reverte™ additives have a very long shelf-life, therefore they can be stored prior to use.
  • Plastics incorporating Reverte™ have not been found to emit any offensive odours during their oxo-biodegradation.
  • Reverte™ additives comply with FDA and EC Food Contact regulations.
  • Reverte™ additives are harmless to humans, animals and plant life and are non-toxic, leaving no known harmful residues in the soil or waste streams.
