BIOGUARD 80 - BIODEGRADABLE 80 MICRON 330MM W X 10M

THE WORLD'S FIRST FULLY BIODEGRADABLE BOOK COVERING

Bioguard 80® is a specially formulated film that emulates similar properties and applications to Bookguard - with the added benefit of being biodegradable.

We’ve successfully developed an “active biodegradable ingredient” that enables Bioguard 80® to fully biodegrade when placed in the right compostable environment (landfill or compost) without leaving microplastics.

 

NB: The active biodegradable ingredient can produce a slight grain / texture in Bioguard 80®. There is no loss of clarity or reduction in protection. 

 

Bioguard 80® will not begin to biodegrade during normal library use.

The active biodegradable ingredient will not activate until it is placed into anaerobic-digestion conditions – landfill or compost. These conditions must be dark and include

  • Moisture
  • Presence of micro-organisms
  • Temperature range of 10-30 degrees Celsius

 

Bioguard 80® is manufactured by Raeco so customers can expect our highest standards of clarity and quality. Bioguard 80® is the same thickness [80 microns] as Bookguard 80 and offers the same protection as Bookguard. Application of both products remains the same.

Bioguard 80® is suitable to cover all books covered by existing 80-micron adhesive book covering.

 

NO MICROPLASTICS HERE

Bioplastics may be promoted as "environmentally friendly" or plant based, however, they not fully biodegradable. Instead of truly degrading, these materials merely fragment into bite-sized microplastics. Microplastics are incredibly dangerous toxins and remain in the environment. They build up in oceans, contaminate soil, waterways and accumulate inside countless animals and marine life.

Bioguard 80® is the world's first FULLY biodegradable book covering. It breaks down completely in compost or landfill environments. Worms eat is leaving only compost! 

 

Bioguard 80® presents the same features of Raeco’s popular Bookguard80 including:

  • Repositionable / Delayed bond
  • Acid Free
  • Gloss finish
  • Adhesive shelf life – before opening: 12-18 months in normal library office conditions
  • Waterproof protection to the surfaces of books
