R3plas Oxo-Biodegradable plastic product uses thermal, UV and oxidative mechanism to degrade. The oxidation process is similar to burning the plastics and consumes the carbon elements in the plastic backbone.

The degradation process is dependent on:
  1. Concentration of additives
  2. The thickness of material
  3. Type of resin carrier - PE or PP
  4. Level of antioxidant/ UV absorber present in the resin carrier
  5. Presence and level of colored pigments such as carbon black, titanium dioxide,
    opacifiers and colorants
  6. Temperature of the environment
  7. Type of exposure (UV) - under or above ground
