Opus Bio FAQs

Does Opus Bio film perform as well as traditional plastics?

Yes. The puncture resistance, tensile strength and air permeability of Opus Bio film is virtually identical to non-degradable plastics.Opus Bio Film is biodegradable.

What difference does that make?

Opus Bio film reduces plastic pollution and the volume of plastic going to landfill. When disposed of, Opus Bio film will biodegrade within 12 to 24 months leaving no toxic residues. Conventional plastics will remain in the environment for decades, often as litter or filling up ever decreasing landfill reserves.

How does the film biodegrade?

The film uses special additives that start to degrade the material without impacting the integrity of the film. Once disposed of, the film will undergo oxidative degradation. The molecular structure of the film is altered enabling the material to totally degrade in the presence of moisture, micro-organisms and oxygen.

So, how can my customers dispose of the air cushions?

Opus Bio air cushions can be recycled in the existing plastic waste stream. The cushions can also be recycled in home or commercial composting facilities, although we do not claim compostability for the material under EN13432

Can I have my company logo printed on the cushions?

Yes. Show your customers that you care about the environment. 82% of UK consumers prefer to purchase goods and services from companies that are socially and environmentally responsible. Social Market Foundation
