Nomaco Engineered Foam Solutions to launch first biodegradable PE foam

January 27/2011

(Plastemart) -- The worlds first biodegradable polyethylene foam is to be launched by Nomaco Engineered Foam Solutions. Unlike competing biodegradable products, NomaGreen foam is not starch-based or bio-based, and will meet all performance requirements for packaging foam without any worry of exposing it to moisture, heat, light or mechanical stress.

A third party independent laboratory was utilized to test to the foam to ensure it meets ASTM D-5511 standards for biodegradability. Results showed that after 120 days in the lab, Nomagreen achieved 49% biodegradation. The proprietary formulation allows the foam to biodegrade naturally without having to sacrifice any of the excellent performance characteristics that standard polyethylene foam provides. NomaGreen's biodegradation process only occurs when the foam is placed in a microbe-rich environment, such as a landfill.
