Stellar Films launches sustainable personal care films utilising Cardia Biohybrid technology
Melbourne-based established manufacturer Stellar Films has released their new range of sustainable films utilising Cardia Biohybrid™ patented technology for the personal care and medical products industry. The new range of films meets the highest performance standards and displays a unique satin feel. Stellar Films will be present with these novel films at the world's leading nonwovens trade fair, INDEX 11, in Geneva, Switzerland commencing 12th April 2011.
Stellar Films Managing Director, Stephen Walters, said "The combination of performance, environmental profile and cost effectiveness made Cardia BiohybridTM technology the solution for Stellar Films product needs. The unique texture of our BiohybridTM hygiene and medical films gives our customers' products that plush, satin feel and appearance."
Stellar Films' product launch of personal care films made with Cardia BiohybridTM technology is consistent with the INDEX 11 theme of market innovation and sustainability of nonwovens products.
Cardia BiohybridTM technology combines renewable thermoplastics with polyolefin material to reduce dependence on finite oil resources and to reduce carbon footprint. Cardia Managing Director, Dr Frank Glatz, said "Growth for our business is fuelled by the global trend towards sustainable packaging. We are delighted to be collaborating with Stellar Films to offer the personal care industry a product that is environmentally responsible and offers a unique and soft finish."
"Stellar Films is a company committed to the manufacture and supply of the finest quality personal care film products. In conjunction with several of their major customers, Stellar is committed to further enhancing the current range of sustainable products and manufacturing processes.
Our partnership with Stellar Films will enable their personal care film customers to purchase innovative film products with reduced dependence on finite oil resources and lower carbon footprint."
Stephen Walters emphasised Stellar Films' strategy on responsible products and packaging. "We are excited to work with Cardia Bioplastics. Our personal care film products made from Cardia BiohybridTM resins will form an integral part of our responsible product offering."
Cardia Bioplastics is benefiting from the trend towards sustainable packaging with products used in a broad range of packaging applications, including flexible film, injection moulding, blow moulding, foam, extrusion and coating applications. It gives customers the choice of using sustainable Cardia BiohybridTM technology (less oil, lower carbon foot print) or Cardia's internationally certified Compostable technology for their packaging or plastic products.
