Artipas, company specialized in pastry decoration products and hospitality solutions, launches ECOARTIPAS, its first collection of sustainable and eco-responsible disposable items.
It consists on a wide range of products created with natural and renewable materials, like sugar cane pulp, bamboo, palm leaves, wood, the polylactic acid (PLA) and crystallized PLA (CPLA).
Artipas presents at HOSTELCO 2020 its mini sugar cane pulp pan (length, 56 mm; width, 92 mm; height, 14 mm; volume, 25 ml), a palm leaf ship shaped plate (length, 130 mm; width) , 301 mm; height, 57 mm) and a bamboo bowl (length, 100 mm; width, 180 mm; height, 40 mm), among other environmentally friendly items.
Bamboo is an abundant resource, as a complete bamboo forest renews in three years; it is 100% biodegradable, resistant to fat and heat; and articles made with it have no dyes, varnishes or additives.
PLA and CPLA are obtained from corn starch. They are 100% biodegradable materials, resistant to fat and moisture, and can be heated (up to 85º CPLA, and up to 45º PLA). They allow white or transparent finishes.
Likewise, sugarcane pulp laminated in CPLA is 100% biodegradable, waterproof, fat resistant, and withstands temperatures up to 150º.
The wood from the ECOARTIPAS collection comes from sustainable forests and is laminated on paper to strengthen its resistance to moisture and fat. It is 100% biodegradable and can be heated up to 150º.
Lastly, the palm leaf is collected naturally after its fall. Like the rest of the raw materials in the collection, it is 100% biodegradable. In addition, it is fat resistant and can be heated both in the oven and in the microwave
