Biodegradable material facts
The material used in the manufacture of the TreeBio range conforms to EU guidelines and has been tested at an independent laboratory to be classified as fully compostable. It has also gained the DIN CERTO certificate.
The TreeBio guard will be attacked initially by UV degradation to start the break up process. Biodegradable stabilisers are added to the material before the manufacturing process to stabilise the spiral sufficiently to withstand this UV degradation for 4 – 5 years in the place of use.
How it works
The materials are made primarily of polylactic acid, a repeating chain of lactic acid which undergoes a two-stage degradation process. The moisture and heat present in a compost pile and the soil attacks the polymer chains and splits them into much smaller parts of polymer and eventually pure lactic acid. Micro-organisms found in compost and soil will consume the lactic acids as nutrients as a food source for them. The result is carbon dioxide, water and humus which is a soil nutrient.
