Filler masterbatch is an important product in the plastics industry that brings a multitude of valuable applications in human daily life. Mulch film is a popular application of filler masterbatch in agriculture which is very useful for farmers. However, this product caused a contradictory controversy since a large amount of plastic will be discharged into the environment while people use them. In that circumstance, bio-plastic mulch film made from the plastic filler called BIO masterbatches is expected to be the best environmental protection solution.
What are functions of mulch film made from filler masterbatch?
Mulch film is a high-tech product that is frequently used in the agriculture that brings various economic benefits to farmers. Nowadays, almost of mulch films on the market are made from filler masterbatch. They are thin plastic screens used to cover the soil around the plants (there are slots or holes perforated on the film surface leaving free places for plant to rise up) with the main effect of preventing weeds from growing, avoiding evaporation (Farmers do not need to irrigate crops regularly), reducing pesticide usage and keeping methyl bromide in the soil during planting. Moreover, some studies have shown that using colorful plastic mulch films in agriculture will bring different effects on the development of crops in the way of improving agricultural quality and increasing crop yields.
What kind of filler masterbatch is commonly used to make mulching films?
From the mid-50s of the last century, people began the ideal of using PE plastic to make mulching films applied in agricultural production. The first who developed the idea of using plastic instead of glass to build greenhouses is Dr. Emery M. Emmert – who is also known as the “father of plastic greenhouses”. Gradually, as the plastics industry expanded, the more advanced materials such as HDPE and LDPE filler masterbatch became the main raw materials for the production of this type plastic film. Currently, there are about 6,500 km2 of agricultural land around the world using mulching plastic film.
Mulch film made from BIO filler masterbatch – Innovation with various environmental benefits
Unlike mulch plastic films made from normal plastic, mulch films made from BIO filler masterbatch do not need to be removed from the farming area when the season ends. After the crop is harvested and farmers conduct a new crop, these bioplastic films can become a source of fertilizer for the next crops. Thanks to the self-biodegradable properties of the bioplastic based-resin, BIO masterbatches are highly recommended for being utilizing in agriculture in particular and in other industries in general since they help people protect the soil environment as well as the water environment (oceans) in the context that plastic waste are increasingly threatening human life.
The unique product BIO filler masterbatch produced by EuP with the code of EF BIOMATES 01 which is certified OK Compost by VINCOTTE will be the perfect source of materials which cannot be more suitable to make mulch films. These products are now available in the most demanding markets such as the EU and are well received by a wide range of consumers due to the fact that they satisfy nearly all government standards and farmers’ needs. Besides, with 100% biodegradable properties, materbatches under brand-name BIOMATES are also suitable for producing shopping bags, food wrap films and other industrial packaging.
How was BIO filler masterbatch under brand-name BIOMATES produced?
EuP’s BIO filler masterbatch is made from the highest quality raw materials including standard CaCO3 powder exploited from hundreds of year old limestone quarries in Vietnam, bio resin and some additives. These materials are blended and pressed with the most advanced technologies in Vietnam. Machines producing products at EuP are imported from Europe and undergo rigorous testing.
Bio resin in the composition of BIO filler masterbatch has all the inherent properties of traditional plastic made from petroleum. However, they are of natural origin (mainly from plants), making them easy to decompose after use.
