Material Composition

CompostaBlock is 

  • expanded Poly-Lactic Acid (PLA) polymer ,which is derived from renewable sources such as starch or sugar.

  • 100% biocompostable

  • multi-impact resistant

  • thermally efficient

  • carbon Neutral

CompostaBlock Original Formula is a

  • bead and resin compression molded  high density foam product

  • material that can be designed to protect any product

CompostaBlock meets standards  for industrial  composting and recycling

Cushioning

Dynamic shock cushioning characteristics of packaging materials mentioned in ASTM norm1596. Sample 60x 60 x2.5 height 76cm, 10kg drop, first drop 25G.

Composta Block demonstrates equivalent levels of shock cushioning to EPS equivalent packaging

  • Energy Consumption proME CompostaBlock has an energy footprint of between 5096 and 75% of its equivalent fossil fuel EPS foam plastics

  • Waste footprint CompostaBlock and other Composta materials  have a significant smaller impact on the environment during end of life waste disposal and can be clearly seen in our technical brochure .
