b33 biodegradable acetate is priced as an entry level alternative to b31 Italian biodegradable acetate. Made from renewable plant sources, with an additive that allows the acetate to biodegrade when disposed of. b33 does not compromise on finish or feel of conventional acetate.
Acetate is produced by mixing cellulose polymers – plant fibre – with plasticisers.
bio-acetates can be contaminated during production as machines and tools are often used for normal acetates.
Responsible processing requires significant and ongoing cleaning of facilities or separate production lines, storage and management of bio-acetates, to ensure end-product can pass all testing. bow offers production processes that handle biodegardaable acetate without risk of phthalate contamination.
The production process does not differ significantly from regular acetate production in terms of environmental impact.
100% biodegradable, as outlined in the testing protocols and biodegradation regulations achieved below.
Similar performance to virgin acetate.
Certified biodegradable to International standard ISO 14855 (2005).
