WHY IS IT BETTER THAN AN ENVELOPE?
- The porosity of the paper is superior to the classics used in the envelopes.
- The small granulometry of the ethylene absorbent, makes the granulate, has a large surface and with it a high reaction speed.
- The granulate is spread over a large area and comes into contact with ethylene in an easier way.
- They maintain quality and allow to reach distant markets.
All these reasons make it a product, which is capable of reducing ethylene levels like no other. The paper at the bottom, which is in contact with the products, is of a special composition that makes it more resistant to water , than papers containing only cellulose. It is approved for contact with food.
The leaves are packed in groups, with plastic barrier that prevents the sheet can be consumed with air pollutants and helps make the packaging as compact as possible.
