The BIO-RAINPONCHO® - one material - one mission
The corn starch is obtained from the renewable and non-genetically engineered raw material corn, which is grown in Europa under strict regulations.
MATER-BI is a granulate obtained from the Italian company Novamont, the pioneer in the field of bioplastics with over 800 sponsors and various awards.
The BIO rain poncho is fully biodegradable and compostable under composting conditions, within 8-12 weeks. The process is carried out with the help of micro-organisms, so that only water and compost remain. Even a degradability of MATER-BI made products in the sea has been tested and confirmed. The degradation time here is 34-38 weeks. Whether composting or burning - the BIO rain poncho biodegrades CO2 neutrally.
made from conventional plastic, based on the fosil raw material petroleum.
The certified organic rain poncho, on the other hand, is made out of the also certified corn starch - „MATER-BI“.
The BIO rain poncho made from corn starch not only protects reliably against rain, but is also a sustainable, environmentally friendly and breathable material alternative to the usual PE disposable rain poncho, which is
The BIO rain poncho can be stored in a dry and cool place for up to 2 years.
For printing, flexo- and/or gravure printing, also certified water-based inks are used, so that an overall ecological product can be offered.
By default, the BIO rain poncho is packaged in a sealed shut bag of the same material. The bag can also be printed or complemented with an insert of recycled paper, which can be sealed in this bag.
The 100% biodegradability and composability of the BIO rain poncho, as well as the used print colours, is confirmed by the seal of approval „OK Compost“, issued by the world-renowned institute Vinçotte in Belgium. The test method of the quality seal is based on the European standard DIN EN 13432. The printing of the quality seal on the poncho, the packaging or the paper inlay is allowed to be used at your disposal.
Like the classic PE rain poncho, the BIO rain poncho is light, durable and can be used several times. Compared to the PE poncho, however, it is breathable / water vapour permeable. Which means that you won’t work up a sweat in the BIO rain poncho!
