Rigid plastic film and packaging solutions provider Klöckner Pentaplast Group, in collaboration with Resysta, has launched Pentadecor films – made of Resysta.

Resysta is a producer of rice husk-based PVC filler (ARF) and has been developing its PVC / rice husk composite for more than ten years.

The newly launched, 1mm-thick film is the first to be made of rice husk and polymer composite.

Designed for indoor and outdoor applications, the film can be laminated on a variety of surfaces and refined in a range of colours.

The thermoformable film also serves as a wood veneer or an alternative for wood plastic composites (WPC).

The film is currently available in reels and formats, and features additives that ensure maximum water and weather resistance, flexibility and robustness.

"People expect a natural look that evokes a sense of well-being and comfort."

The rice husks used in the film make it sustainable, while a direct pigment application on its surface provides resistance from UV rays.

Klöckner Pentaplast EMEA and Asia development packaging and specialties group director Rainer Schlicht said: "People expect a natural look that evokes a sense of well-being and comfort – whether relaxing inside their living-room, sitting outside in their garden, or in the outdoor area of a restaurant.

"This is why consumers prefer the look of wooden flooring and furniture."

The company said that the production of films in 300µm-800µm thickness was not possible due to the poor rheological behaviour of highly filled compounds.
