Eco-Friendly Cards

Our new Eco-Friendly cards are tough and high quality, but harmlessly break down when disposed of.

SICOECO Degradable Film

SICOECO is a rigid PVC film that is produced with an additive making it degradable. It can be sent to landfill (put in standard waste) where it will harmlessly degrade. When tested by Northeast Laboratories, Inc (using Method ASTM D5511 – Standard Test Method for Determining Anaerobic Biodegradation of Plastic Materials Under High-Solids Anaerobic Digestion Conditions) SICOECO impressively achieved 9.57% bio degradation within 60 days. It even achieved  7.49% bio degradation within the first one and a half months (45 days). This was using organic compost and tests were carried out 3 times, with an average used for these figures. This contrasted strongly against a PE negative control which achieved zero degradation over the same periods.

We now provide two eco-friendly options:

SICOECO overlay and new eco-friendly SICOECO core

Environmentally friendly card

Firstly you can opt for an eco-friendly SICOECO overlay and new eco-friendly SICOECO core. This can be sent to landfill were it degrades as outlined above (with 9.57% bio degradation within the first two months when tested).

This combination also enables the option of PVC recycling (into reusable material wherever this facility is available, as well as waste to energy recycling).

TESLIN® Biodegradable Substrate core, with a SICOECO overlay

Alternatively our long-standing eco-friendly cards contain a TESLIN® Biodegradable Substrate core, with a SICOECO overlay. This can again be sent to landfill as it is biodegradable, producing a much ‘greener’ card than standard alternatives.

Minimising environmental impact

Our friendly account managers are here to help you select from a range of additional features that are compatible with our Eco Card material. Together we can work to provide you with a greener product that suits your budget.
