Raw materials
The products manufactured by Taghleef Industries S.p.A. derive mainly from two sources: polypropylene (PP)
and polylactic acid (PLA). The first one is a thermo-plastic polymer that consists of non-toxic molecules made up
of only carbon and hydrogen atoms. The second one is a bioplastic
obtained from corn starch or sugar cane that is 100% compostable.
During the manufacturing process, the use of highly concentrated
additive masterbatches define the specific characteristics of the
film. All raw materials used by Taghleef Industries S.p.A. comply
with the National and European Union regulations and most of
these fulfil also the Food Contact regulations of the USA.
