eSUN PLA coated paper cups,customizable in various specifications!

2021-05-17

Disposable cups have always been popular because of their convenience. From the first traditional plastic products, to later paper products, to the popular bio-material products nowadays, many changes have taken place in consumer choice due to time and circumstances.

 

Traditional plastic cups have long been rejected by consumers because of their harm to the body and pollution to the natural environment. Nowadays, the "pseudo-environmental protection" mask of traditional paper cups is gradually being uncovered.

 

According to research by Dr. Sudha Goel of the School of Environmental Science and Engineering of the Indian Institute of Technology, a paper cup filled with hot coffee or hot tea will degrade the microplastic layer in the cup within 15 minutes. It releases 25,000 micron-sized particles into the hot beverage. An ordinary person who drinks three cups of tea or coffee in a disposable paper cup every day will ingest 75,000 plastic particles invisible to the naked eye.

 

In addition, the paper cup also leaves behind a thin plastic that will pollute the environment, that is, the inner side of the paper cup is coated. Traditional paper cups usually use polyethylene (PE) plastic coating, which is non-degradable. As a result, the disposable paper cups neither decompose in the landfill, nor can they be recycled.

In 2021, under the influence of the "ban and limit plastic" policy, biological materials have begun to penetrate all walks of life. In the tableware industry, major manufacturers have successively used biodegradable materials to replace traditional materials. PLA coated paper cups have entered the field of vision of consumers.

 

As a company that has been rooted in the biomaterials industry for nearly 20 years, eSUN has mature experience in the synthesis and application of biodegradable raw materials and modified materials.

 

一、About eSUN PLA coated paper

Properties

 

1. PLA coated paper is a technology that combines PLA with paper. It can be used to make a variety of products, such as cold (hot) beverage cups, coffee cups, soup bowls, trays and lunch boxes. Compared with the traditional polyethylene coated paper, PLA coated paper can not only play the role of waterproof, oil, heat insulation, but also has the characteristics of non-toxic, completely biodegradable.

 

2. 100% bio-based, according with EN13432 and ASTM D6400.In the composting environment, completely decomposed into carbon dioxide and water,  environmentally friendly, non-toxic, low-carbon release, the human body, biological, environmental non-toxic harmless. Make the use of “Pland Paper” to fabricate cups and boxes in compliance with FDA, EU  food contact regulationswill not emanate peculiar smells and generate any hazardous substances to harm the human's health. It is absolutely safer than polyethylene coated cellulose fiber food utensils.

02 Five Characteristics of PLA Paper Cups   

 

① Material environmental protection:​

Material environmental protection: Polylactic acid (PLA) coated paper replaces polyethylene (PE) coated paper. PLA is a biodegradable material, which is made by fermentation of agricultural crops such as corn. The production process of PLA is pollution-free, biodegradable and recyclable in nature, making it an ideal green polymer material. It is in line with the global and national environmental policy of plastic restriction and ban.

 

② Material safety​

Material safety: Polylactic acid has good safety performance. Polyethylene (PE) coated paper may be oxidized to carbonyl compounds during the process of melting or applying it to the cup paper, and the cup may emit peculiar smell when poured into hot water. Polylactic acid coated paper has no peculiar smell, and has certain antibacterial and anti-ultraviolet properties.

 

③ Material resistance to high and low temperatures: ​

 

Material resistance to high and low temperatures: Polylactic acid (PLA) coated paper has good resistance to high and low temperatures, and will not leak or deform when made into cold and hot liquid containers. It has good strength and heat-sealability, and meets the requirements of coated paper cups.

 

 Uniform coating layer​

 

Uniform coating layer: The polylactic acid coating layer is uniform, flat and smooth, and has a good feel. It has excellent quality such as increased adhesion and gloss.

 

 Water and oil resistance: ​

 

Water and oil resistance: Polylactic acid coated paper has the characteristics of traditional polyethylene (PE) coated paper to block water and oil.
