PLA coated paper is food-grade paper coated with a PLA film layer to create a hydrophobic (water-resistant) surface resistant to liquid. PLA coated paper is one alternative to plastic food packaging.
· Eco-friendly benefit
Paper containers, especially cups, were typically coated/lined with plastic or polyethylene (PE). Plastic is not biodegradable and is harmful to the environment. PLA does the same job as PE without any of the environmental challenges. It can significantly reduce the plastic film use amount in paper packaging
· 100% Biodegradable
PLA coating is made from cornstarch and sugarcane. It is 100% biodegradable. Compared to the coating of PLA, PE coating is non-biodegradable and almost not able to decompose in landfills and oceans. However, PLA-coated paper can be biodegradable within 6-12 months of composting under specific conditions.
· Food Contact Safe
PLA coated paper complies with Bio-standards (EN13432 and ASTM D6400). It can decompose into carbon dioxide and water in a composting environment. It brings non-toxic to the human body and contributes to our environment. Disposable paper container made of PLA coated paper is safe to contact food service under FDA and EU food contact regulation
