What is Aquapak’s Hydropol™ made from?
Aquapak polymer, including Hydropol™ is made from PVOH. Aquapak has, after 10 years of R&D, perfected a method of thermally processing PVOH allowing the production of pellets, which is the standard form for secondary processing in the plastics industry. Aquapak’s global patent is a combination of process know-how and chemistry.
Aquapak’s materials, being based on PVOH a hydrophilic and water-soluble polymer, are inherently biodegradable, that is, given the right balance of environment and microbial presence it will biodegrade to carbon dioxide, water and mineralised natural biomass.
