Water-soluble films applications have been growing since last decade as solubility bring strong benefits to users and reduce the impact of the waste. That’s why soluble film has been widely accepted by end customers and industry in many segments like detergency, sanitary laundry, agrochemical, embroidery, packaging and many others.

Traditional water-soluble materials are petrol-based (PVA, PVOH…) but new alternatives coming from natural origin are possible.

Caretips© from Lactips is a water-soluble film solution that dissolves completely without leaving residue. It is superior to conventional soluble plastics and gives broad access to environmental certifications (ECOCERT/ECOLABEL/NORDIC ECOLABEL). Its solubility in both cold and hot water, its biodegradability, and its natural origin makes it a high-performance, attractive, eco-friendly alternative that meets the needs of customers, regulation and society.

Discover how the unique natural water-soluble polymer can support your circular-economy strategies and to take advantages to present and future environmental challenges.

Broad range of applications:
  1. Laundry bags.
  2. Single use packaging for detergency.
  3. Coating for paper based packaging.
  4. Sachet and flow pack for inert products.
  5. Stabilising Film for Embroidery.
  6. Water soluble labels.
  7. Seed tape and coatings.
