Lactips and Plastiques Venthenat launch new consumer and commercial applications

June 6, 2021 |

In France, Lactips, a company specialized in producing a soluble plastic with zero environmental trace, has developed new product applications to address the issue of polluting plastics on multiple levels. To strengthen and extend its dedicated range of plastics for water-soluble packaging, Lactips set up a partnership with Plastiques Venthenat, a French industrial firm specialized in the extrusion of highly technical plastic films, to transform its plastic pellets, based on a natural raw material, with multiple properties, into rolls of films, without any impact on the environment, for distribution to its clients.

Marketed under the BIOCYTER brand (aiming to replace polyvinyl alcohol (PVA) films), Plastiques Venthenat is directly addressing the single-dose monolayer packaging and detergent markets and laundry services, particularly in the medical sector (thanks to the applications for water-soluble ties and bags).

“I am delighted with the partnership agreement signed with Lactips, enabling us to combine our respective areas of know-how to industrially master the extrusion of our BIOCYTER film based on the Lactips resin. The qualities of this biosourced, water-soluble and biodegradable film are fully aligned with the growing demand among our clients for environmentally-responsible packaging to replace many traditional plastic films”, confirms Michel Rauturier, CEO of Plastiques Venthenat.
