The AS030C additive generates a deficit of negative charges under compost conditions, the polymer chains recombining, therefore, breaks are generated and ends up through hydrolysis mechanisms, decomposing the polymer into much shorter chains that end up transforming into carbon dioxide with the action of compost bacteria.
Basic conditions to consider a compostable polymer according to EN 13432:
When checking the components, the absence of heavy materials is verified.
The threshold of biodegradability meets 90% at 6 months maximum.
Disintegration generates material fragments smaller than 2mm x 2mm after 12 weeks.
The ecotoxicity of humus is zero.
