Flexible Packaging Middle East Conference

Reverte™ at the 9th Edition of the Flexible Packaging Middle East Conference held in Dubai – December 2017

On 5th December 2017 Dr Gary Ogden, Technical Manager at Wells Plastics, completed this year’s busy schedule of technical papers by presenting a paper on Reverte™ at the 9th Edition of the Flexible Packaging Middle East Conference held in Dubai. The technical paper demonstrated how flexible laminated packaging can be made fully oxo-biodegradable by utilising Reverte™ additive masterbatches.

Wells Plastics’ Reverte™ range of oxo-biodegradable masterbatches is well established as a major brand in the Middle East region fully complying with local legislation.

Wells Plastics is delighted to hold both the Quality Marks of ESMA in the UAE and SASO in Saudi Arabia for our Reverte™ range which has been independently audited and certified.

In addition to our presence in the UAE and Saudi Arabia, Reverte™ also enjoys an excellent reputation and distribution network into various other countries in the Middle East including Lebanon, Jordan, Qatar, Bahrain and Oman.

Dr Ogden presented the well-established science behind Reverte™ oxo-biodegradable technology showing delegates at the conference the very latest independent third party test data, which was the culmination of over five years work, for polyethylene (PE), polypropylene (PP) and polyethylene terephthalate (PET), which are primarily used for manufacturing laminated flexible packaging.

Wells Plastics believe that this work now represents the most comprehensive suite of tests completed to date on oxo-biodegradable technology and provides the consumer with full confidence on the performance of Reverte™ and its unparalleled credentials.

In addition to this work, Wells Plastics has completed a range of tests of multilayer laminates made of PET, BOPP, MET PET, MET BOPP, PE films incorporating Reverte™ in all the layers and it has now been well proven that multilayer packaging incorporating Reverte™ will oxo-biodegrade if these items end up in the open environment.
