Tipa launches biodegradable film for food packaging

Tipa is an Israeli company started in 2010 with the goal of creating biodegradable and recyclable packaging. The company’s patent pending polymer based films can be shaped into pouches that are 100% biodegradable within 180 days of composting. Its biodegradable compounds can be manufactured using form fill seal machines; this includes casting, injection molding, thermoforming, heat sealing, coating, printing and aseptic/cold filling. Tipa’s films have been approved for food packaging, have high durability and flexibility and high resistance to oxygen, water vapor permeation and transparency.
