Introducing MICA MC-634, our First Compostable Adhesion Promoter

MICA MC-634 is an aqueous emulsion designed to be used as an adhesion promoter, or sealing layer, for compostable substrates and extrudates, such as paper, PLA and PHA, and metalized bio-based film. It passes all of the Biodegradable Products Institute’s (BPI) rigorous testing requirements, including the ASTM D6400, as a standalone product, which means it completely biodegrades in municipal and industrial composting facilities. MICA MC-634 can help paper and packaging professionals achieve ambitious goals to create more sustainable food and beverage packaging while simultaneously helping to solve a global waste problem that has been negatively impacting the environment for decades.

    MICA MC-634 is an aqueous emulsion that passes the ASTM D6400 standard for compostability. It is designed to function as a sealing layer or adhesion promoter applied to paperboard substrates for adhesion to PLA and PHA resins and films. It may also find use as a primer applied to paper, and bio-based metalized and non-metalized films, for adhesion of PLA and PHA extrudates.
