We developed Mvera™ B5008 in 2012 to bring our customers a new resin engineered for tough, certified compostable bag and film applications. Mvera B5008 resin is a versatile material with a good balance of puncture toughness, tear propagation resistance and durability. This resin processes easily on conventional thermoplastics equipment with high melt strength and excellent bubble stability. Mvera B5008 is designed for the compostable bag and film market where industrial composting is available. Potential uses include blown and cast film applications for industrial can liners, retail bags, organics and yard waste collection bags. Mvera B5008 resin is certified by Vinçotte to meet the EN 13432 standard for compostable plastics to 288 microns or 11 mils thickness.
