Laboratory study of cellulose in plastic packaging

Industrialists from all sectors, you wish to study cellulose in your plastic packaging?

What is cellulose?

Cellulose is a carbohydrate naturally found in plants, making it the most widely used organic material in the world.

Particularly used in the packaging industry, cellulose has several advantages, including

  • Flexibility
  • Impermeability
  • Air and heat resistance

Thus, cellulose is a major element in the composition of many matrices such as food film, bags and packaging for all types of products.

Why study cellulose in your plastic packaging?

The characteristics of a material depend on its composition. Indeed, two materials with different cellulose contents will not have the same properties.

Thus, the study of cellulose in your plastic packaging allows you to better know your materials and to understand the different failures you may be confronted with.

Therefore, the support of a laboratory specialised in the analysis of cellulose in plastic packaging is a considerable asset in the marketing of your products.

FILAB supports you in the analysis of cellulose in your plastic packaging
