BIOPOLYMER by NATURE WORK
Can a simple plastic film wrap really make a difference?
Yes it can! Unlike the usual wrap, films, labels and laminates made from oil-based materials, Ingeo films are made from plants. By using plants,
making Ingeo films uses 50% less non-renewable energy & results in 75% less greenhouse gases than traditional plastics.
Our films provide performance with a conscience. By choosing this ingenious new film for everything from a sandwich wrap to a label,
you can help change the world one even if it’s just one tasty snack bag at a time.
Choosing a bottle to make a difference
This isn’t just about another plastic bottle. Unlike regular bottles made from finite petroleum resources, bottles made from Ingeo plastic are a step in the right direction.
Because Ingeo is made from plants, not oil, making these containers produces 75% less greenhouse gases & uses 50% less non-renewable energy than traditional plastics like PET & PS
Ingeo plastic is a material with a conscience. Choosing a new bottle, without sacrificing performance, is one small way you can make an eco-friendly difference even if it’s just one bottle at a time.

|BIOPOLYMER 4032 D||OTHER SPECIALTY POLYOLEFIN||Ingeo 4032D can be converted into a iaxially oriented film with use temperatures up to 300?F (150?C). This film has excellent optics, good machinability and excellent twist and deadfold. These properties make 4032D film an ideal product for laminations and other packaging applications. Additional properties include barrier to flavor and grease and oil resistance.||1.24 g/cc||-||15 kpsi||500 kpsi||180||Natural||Pellets|
|BIOPOLYMER 4043 D||BIOBASE POLYESTER||Ingeo 4043D – a product from NatureWorks LLC – can be converted into a biaxially oriented film with use temperatures up to 265?F (130?C). This film has excellent optics, good machinability and excellent twist and deadfold. These properties make 4043D film an ideal candidate for candy twist wrap and other packaging applications. Additional properties include advantageous barrier to flavor and grease and superior oil resistance.||1.24 g/cc||-||16 kpsi||480 kpsi||160||Natural||Pellets|
|BIOPOLYMER 7001 D||OTHER SPECIALTY POLYOLEFIN||Ingeo biopolymer 7001D, a NatureWorks LLC product, is a thermoplastic resin derived from annually renewable resources and is specifically designed for use ininjection stretch blow molded (ISBM) bottle applications. Ingeo biopolymer 7001D can be run using conventional ISBM equipment, but processes at lower temperatures than PET and can attain good resolution of mold detail on conventional tooling.||1.24 g/cc||6||-||-||-||Natural||Pellets|
