by Universal Engineering Corporation Suppliers Of Precision Testing Instruments in Saha

When it comes to living green, the first thing that comes to our mind is the acceptance of environmentally friendly products in our lifestyle. However, finding these products have never been easy. But industries that earlier sounded negative about manufacturing non-eco-friendly products are making efforts to improve and adapt earth-friendly actions. And being a leading supplier of packaging testing instruments, we have observed numerous positive changes in the recent past. One of these positive actions includes introducing eco-friendly and biodegradable packaging. 

As soon as the consumer consumes the product, its packaging finds its place in the trash bin, the excessive dumping of which leads to excessive pollution. Since you cannot stop the consumers from throwing the packaging, it's better to produce such packaging that even when dumped in the environment does not harm it severely. Here comes the biodegradable packaging.

Let us look at some of the most biodegradable packaging materials of recent times.

Biodegradable & Sustainable Packaging Materials

  1. Biodegradable Material

Biodegradable materials refer to those that decompose in the environment. These are compostable and made of plant-based materials such as corn, wheat straw sugarcane, bamboo, etc. They are even made of bio-polymers. These materials can break down into compost within one-eighty and ninety days, under home and commercial composting conditions respectively. 

  1. Recycled Materials

Recycled plastic is one great example of eco-friendly materials. These materials help in conserving the natural resources, minimizing the waste in landfills, and reducing pollution. Today, a number of companies are providing their products in recycled packaging, which even if gets dumped in the environment will not harm it. 

  1. Corrugated Paper Board Packaging

Corrugated boxes are made of paper boards. A number of corrugated packaging is also recovered from recycling. It is strong, durable, and can endure the products to prevent them from external damages. From small to large, every industry is using this type of packaging and contributing their bit to the improvement. These packagings are often evaluated using machines like tensile testers, ring crush tester, etc to ensure their strength before sending them to the markets. 

  1. Cellulose Packaging Materials

This type of packaging is made of natural resources like wood, cotton, hemp, etc. Hence, is the most biodegradable and sustainable option for packaging purposes. It is both moisture resistant and strong enough to carry products. In the current times, industries like food, jewelry, etc, are preferring this packaging to deliver products to their customers.  

  1. Cornstarch Packaging

As the name suggests, this kind of packaging is made from cornstarch. Corn starch is a renewable source that does not contain harmful toxins. This is what makes it compostable, sustainable, and biodegradable. This packaging material is also used to replace plastic bubble wraps, it is both cheap and easy to produce, and is even preferred by companies as raw material. 

Conclusion

It has become inevitably important for the packaging manufacturers to invest in machines and equipment that allow them to deliver the right quality of packaging to other industries and consumers. Various paper testing equipment, ranging from a tensile tester to a water absorption tester to those that test packaging thickness is manufactured and supplied by UECIN. Get in touch to know about these machines, and introduce them to your manufacturing businesses.
