It is typically sold as rolls in the boxes with
a cutting edge, clings to many smooth surfaces and can thus remain tight over
the opening of a container without polluting the food.Common plastic wrap is
roughly 0.0005 inches and the intention has been to produce thinner plastic
wrap, particularly for household use. Therefore now the majority of brands around the world are almost 8, 9 or 10 μm thick.
It is initially created
from Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC), which
still excels as the most common component globally. PVC has an acceptably-low
permeability to components like water vapor and oxygen which helps to preserve
the freshness of food. It is quite concerning that the transfer of plastic
components from PVC into food is still a major problem that the world faces.
The Pliofilm was originally made of
various kinds of rubber chloride which was used in the middle of the 20th
century. A cheaper alternative to PVC is the low-density polyethylene (LDPE)
and it is less adhesive but this particular flaw can be remedied by adding
linear low-density polyethylene (LLDPE), which is believed to add or increase
the strength of the film.
In few countries like
the US and Japan, the wrap is sometimes
produced using polyvinylidene chloride (PVdC). Also some brands have also switched
to other formulations due to environmental concerns. It may keep your food away
from pollutants but it can be a possible pollutant to the Earth. So there has
to be effective use of these components or must introduce other alternative
kinds of options.
