To meet sustainability targets and fulfill commitments to the plastics circular economy, producers of plastic articles are increasingly using polymers that are compostable. Clariant’s business unit Pigments is contributing to this growth in compostable plastic articles, with a range of certified OK compost INDUSTRIAL pigments, offering customers new coloring opportunities.

“We are proud of this development that is part of our strategy to offer solutions for more sustainable packaging and to strengthen our product portfolio,” said Andreas Buder, Technical Marketing Manager Plastics at Clariant. “This certification allows our customers to use bright colors in their biodegradable products, since they are suitable for industrial composting.”

The PV Fast and Graphtol range of pigment powders are high performance organic pigments. Both product ranges are used in various applications in the consumer goods sector, such as sensitive food contact packaging, plastics tableware/dishware or toys.

The coloration of biodegradable polymers requires the pigments to meet certain characteristics in order to be considered compostable. For processing through organic recovery facilities, this requires a low heavy metal and fluorine content, and no ecotoxicity towards plants.
