#INVISIBLEBAG is water-soluble, compostable, biodegradable, proven to be non-toxic and leaves no harmful residue on earth. An alternative for manufacturers and brands to replace conventional plastic packaging.
High Tensile Strength
Oil & Grease Resistant
WHAT'S #INVISIBLEBAG MADE OF?
#INVISIBLEBAG is made of a water soluble and biodegradable combination of Polyvinyl Alcohol (known as PVA), starch, glycerin and water. One of the primary ingredients, Polyvinyl Alcohol (PVA), is a water-soluble and biodegradable synthetic polymer. It was invented in the 1920s by German Scientists, and has mostly been used in medical, embroidery, garment and personal applications since the 1960s, for products such as medicine capsules and laundry detergent pods.
HOW TO DISSOLVE #INVISIBLEBAG?
We recommend dissolving it in 80℃ hot water or above. Simply put the bag in a container and pour boiling water on top, after a few minutes it will have dissolved. After the dissolution, you can pour the remaining liquid down the drain where it will be treated at a sewage plant. When the dissolved #INVISIBLEBAG arrives at the sewage treatment plant, it will be consumed by microorganisms and completely break down to only carbon dioxide and water, with absolutely no formation of microplastics.
#INVISIBLEBAG IS TESTED & CERTIFIED
ASTM D5511 determines whether a material is biodegradable under high-solids anaerobic-digestion conditions; the test result shows that over 85% of the #INVISIBLEBAG have biodegraded in 90 days.
FTIR analysis is a material test that detects and identifies chemical compounds in products. We appointed the quality assurance provider, Intertek, to perform an FTIR analysis on #INVISIBLEBAG which certifies that it is plastic-free and does not contain PP, PE, PS, PVC.
Vitargent is a biotechnology lab based in Hong Kong. It conducts EEQ tests to screen chronic toxicity. Our bags show no estrogenic activity and are confirmed to be environmentally safe. EEQ test uses modified medaka embryos with jellyfish DNA as a cruelty-free testing method.
The American ASTM D6400 is equivalent to the EN 13432 in the E.U. It certifies material as compostable whereby 90% or more of which will break down to carbon dioxide (CO2) by microorganisms within 180 days in ideal composting conditions, while the remaining share is converted into water and biomass.
