VITOPEL ARGENTINA films are not soluble in water and being less dense than water, they float. Regarding sanitary burial, its degradation is very slow, however, it does not release substances that are harmful to the environment during this process. VITOPEL ARGENTINA are produced for different industries, among which is the food packaging industry. These comply with the legal provisions in force in the user countries, for example, the requirements of the Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Code of Federal Regulations (CFR) of the United States and the requirements of Mercosur resolutions, to be used in contact with food of all kinds. In metalized films, avoid direct contact between food and the metalized surface; Excessive friction on this surface can cause detachment of the deposited metal.
The films of VITOPEL ARGENTINA are inert and non-toxic. However, in case of ingestion, it is recommended to consult a doctor.

Regarding sanitary burial, its degradation is very slow, however, it does not release substances that are harmful to the environment during this process. VITOPEL ARGENTINA do not cause issues when in contact with the skin. However allergic reactions are unpredictable. In these cases it is recommended to consult a doctor.
VITOPEL ARGENTINA films are combustible, and burn when exposed to flames, producing smoke that is harmful to health and should not be inhaled
The films involved in a fire keep the flame burning, even if the ignition source is removed, as long as there is sufficient oxygen in the environment. NOTE: The spontaneous ignition temperature of the film is more than 280° C.
Fires involving films can be put out with a common fire extinguisher, (the use of a triclass powder extinguisher – type ABC – or water being recommended), but there may be restrictions due to the presence of other materials.
It is recommended to use the films only for the purpose for which they were manufactured. For example, they should not be used as decoration in places where there is a risk of fire.
VITOPEL ARGENTINA Films remain suitable for use for up to six (6) months for non-metallized BOPP and CPP materials, three (3) months for metallized BOPP and CPP materials, and one (1) year for HB (high barrier) materials from your billing.
For the storage of VITOPEL ARGENTINA films, adequate rotation of the stock is recommended, and that its storage be at temperatures between 18°C and 28°C. We also recommend that the films do not remain directly exposed to the sun and/or rain, and keep the original packaging during storage to protect the product from dust and physical, chemical and biological contaminants.
It is not recommended to stack the pallets, although studies have shown that it is possible to stack up to two (2) pallets or three (3) meters high, without causing damage to the product.
VITOPEL ARGENTINA films are not soluble in water and being less dense than water, they float. Regarding sanitary burial, its degradation is very slow, however, it does not release substances that are harmful to the environment during this process. VITOPEL ARGENTINA no son solubles en agua y al ser menos densos que esta, flotan. Con respecto al enterramiento sanitario, su degradación es muy lenta; sin embargo, no liberan sustancias perjudiciales para el entorno durante este proceso.
Non-printed films are not classified as special waste, therefore, they can be recycled several times by extrusion, or they can be incinerated to obtain thermal or electrical energy. Special care must be taken when handling waste metallized films, since they contain a metallic layer and can conduct electricity.
The packaging of the coils is made up of wood (pallets and sides) and/or returnable plastic (pallets and sides). VITOPEL ARGENTINA, y deben ser acondicionados para su recupero y reutilización.
The rest of the packaging materials can, in the event that their reuse is not possible, be discarded or recycled together with similar materials.
VITOPEL ARGENTINA films can be printed or laminated on existing equipment on the market, using available solvents, inks and adhesives, following the precautions recommended by the respective manufacturers. Additional suggestions can be obtained from our Commercial department.
It is recommended that the drying temperature used in conversion processes does not exceed 75°C to avoid dimensional distortion of the film.
To avoid deformation of VITOPEL ARGENTINA films, it is recommended to use moderate sealing temperatures (below 145°C) together with a short residence time in the clamp, mainly in low-speed packaging equipment.
All VITOPEL ARGENTINA films can be used in the freezer. Direct use in cooking processes is not recommended and they should not be used for heating applications of foods rich in fat or sugar in microwave ovens at temperatures above 120°C.
