Eco-Tie is a high-strength, completely biodegradable/compostable (per ASTM 6400 standards) alternative to twine and metallic/plastic ties used in agricultural and industrial markets. Unlike metallic and plastic ties, Eco-Tie will biodegrade rapidly when exposed to other organic materials, but will retain strength while in use. This unique and proprietary technology was designed specifically for vineyards where the grape plants are tied to metal wire and fences during their growing cycle. By using Eco-Tie, wine producers are able to further minimize the environmental impact of their production.
AVAILABILITY: Standard Eco-Tie is supplied on spools and is a single strand of compostable plastic. Custom runs are possible with up to 3-prong strands of any length. Elasticity and strength can also be modified to meet various customer demands.
SHELF LIFE AND USEFUL LIFE: Until exposed to microorganisms or similar environments, Eco-Tie will remain stable. When in use, Eco-Tie will remain strong and usable until exposed to microorganisms, excessive heat, or excessive UV exposure. Moisture and heat alone will not degrade Eco-Tie under most conditions. However since moisture and heat allow microorganisms to become more active, these factors can indirectly reduce shelf life and useful life.
