All of our NOVUS® air cushion material is designed with FP International's patented, innovative air transfer technology that allows air movement (transfer) within cushions during shipment. This movement acts as a shock absorber to provide continuous, best-in-industry protection. Air bags without air transfer technology can transmit shock and damage products during shipment
There are two thicknesses of NOVUS films –
1) Premium, 1.76 mil; only available in standard film
2) Economy Select, 1.4 mil; available in standard or green film
Our green air cushions are made from 100% recyclable material, and can be reused and recycled.
Important Facts about NOVUS Select Green Air Cushions
Our green air cushions contain an additive that accelerates biodegradation. They will biodegrade* in 1 to 5 years or more, depending on conditions, when in the presence of microorganisms. Because conditions vary from place to place and landfill to landfill, the exact time for degradation varies depending upon the level of microbial activity. Process shown in Figure 1.
* Contains an additive that accelerates biodegradation when in the presence of microorganisms. The rate and time for biodegradation varies depending on conditions.
The results of standard test methods ASTM D5511, ASTM D5338 and ASTM 5209, concluded that plastic products manufactured with the additive are biodegradable and safe for the environment. The additive will not transfer to other products because it must be mixed with the raw materials during production leaving no residue. This additive is used in numerous plastic products throughout the world. This plastic packaging which biodegrades is compliant with the EN 13427 standard.
*Products labeled 'biodegradable' are not offered for sale in the state of California.
