filmolux® soft organic – the new standard in book protection is green

  • 90 µm glossy book protection film
  • Bio-based polyethylene (PE) made from sugarcane
  • Sugarcane is a renewable resource that absorbs CO2
    during its growth
  • Antibacterial effect (according to ISO 22196)
  • Solvent-free and aging-resistant adhesive

Neschen is expanding its organic product family with filmolux® soft organic, the sustainable alternative to the topseller filmolux® soft. Like filmolux® libre organic, it is made of bio-based polyethylene obtained from the renewable raw material sugar cane. Sugar cane is a versatile and rapidly renewable plant that can be used, for example, as a clean source of energy or as a raw material for the production of book protection film. After harvesting, bio-ethanol is extracted from the sugar cane, which binds CO2 from the atmosphere in every growth cycle, and is used to produce green polyethylene (bio-PE). This helps reduce greenhouse gas emissions compared to conventional polyethylene, which is made from fossil resources and significantly improves the eco-balance. In addition, it has the same application and performance properties as petrochemical polyethylene. filmolux® soft organic is made from bio-PE, which consists of more than 90 percent renewable raw materials.

filmolux® soft organic has an antibacterial effect and thus supports the effectiveness of hygiene concepts in libraries (tested according to ISO 22196 by the independent testing institute QualityLabs).

The new book protection film is REACH-compliant and therefore also APEO- and BPA-free, and it can be easily bonded to all smooth surfaces. Furthermore, the adhesive and the film are plasticizer-free. You can correct minor errors quickly during processing due to its reduced initial adhesion. The printed grid on the 100% recyclable PE film also makes it easy to cut to size.

With this new product addition, Neschen shows that sustainability is an essential and permanent topic. Many other Neschen portfolios, such as the wallpaper range, already have green product alternatives. In addition, Neschen has already included many PP-based products in its book protection range. Given the high priority given to sustainability, Neschen is pleased to offer filmolux® soft organic, another one hundred percent recyclable, and climate-neutral book protection film.
