Promovita® products have applications in different industrial sectors, such as food packaging, single-use clothing, industrial packaging and the floriculture industry. Recent years have seen a growing demand for environmentally-friendly biodegradable products, which has led to a significant growth in Promovita® laminate production and has motivated the organisation to explore new channels of experimentation and broaden their fields of application.
In a composting facility, Mater-Bi ® decomposes in a matter of months and not the thousands of years required by traditional petroleum-based plastics. Promovita® decomposition can be on a par with that of Mater-Bi ® or might vary depending on the degradation time of the natural substrate it is blended with.
Significant investment has facilitated mass-production, reducing costs and producing a more effective product which is lighter, more breathable and practically identical to the common surgical mask. Our masks have been certified as Medical Devices (MD) and bear the CE mark, meeting the required criteria and approved by the Ministry of Health.
They protect against biological and chemical risks and have been tested against the bacteriophage phi X 174 virus (24 nm). The masks offer protection from inside to outside (direction of exhalation), this prevents the wearer (even if asymptomatic) from spreading possible infection.
Products are made to the highest standard for individual protection (e.g. Category 3 CE overalls and jackets resistant to the PHI-X174 Bacteriophage virus). The textile line offers a range of products for healthcare, chemical, pharmaceutical and electronics sectors, where operations require maximum certified protection for workers. Thanks to the components of Mater-Bi®, this line of clothing is impervious and breathable and provides an effective barrier to organic liquids and powder such as PHI-X174 Bacteriophage virus, artificial blood or asbestos.
Thanks to its water-resistant properties, mechanical resistance and non-toxicity, Promovita® can be safely used in contact with any food type, whether liquid or solid, at both room and low temperatures. In fact, its extraordinary resistance at low temperatures makes it the ideal product for preserving freezer and refrigerated foodstuffs (guaranteeing the transpiration of the food while maintaining its flavour).
Semi-finished paper used for plates, glasses and biodegradable containers is processed using bio-plastification which ensures resistance and stability while at the same time guaranteeing the product’s eco-compatibility. Promovita® completely adheres to food standards and facilitates the production of a full range of catering products.
Planting pots and containers, which protect the plant during the delicate rooting phase, and once decomposed go on to provide fertilisation to assist in the successive steps in the plant’s growth.
