RafBio PE 85 – A plant-based PE film for home and personal care applications

A film made from sugarcane ethanol, RafBio film, a sustainable alternative to standard PE film, is part of our RafBio family of bio-based labelling solutions. It is made from sugarcane ethanol, contains more than 80% renewable plant-based raw material and it is recyclable within the same recycling streams as fossil-based PE.


RafBio PE performs just like standard PE film and is ideal for home and personal care application, with excellent flexibility for squeezable packaging and contoured containers. It is the ideal choice when you are looking for a sustainable film face material that will reduce greenhouse gass emissions while still keeping products looking their very best – squeeze after squeeze.
