Biodegradable Security Seals

The Latest and Most Environmentally Friendly Security Seal Available On The Market


Pro-Lock® Biodegradable Security Seal

In its produced form, plastics will take centuries to biodegrade. Pro-Lock has assessed various forms of technologies in the form of additives that can enhance the biodegradability of our products. We have now tied up with our technology provider with an additive that is:

• Simple to use and does not affect processing conditions of our products
• Not affecting the properties of the products as compared to its untreated form
• Food safe in accordance to FSA requirements
• Biodegradable only when the product is in an environment of high microbial activities, especially in landfill and composting sites.
• Recyclable to the same extent as its untreated form
• Not degradable after manufacture and not requiring special storage after the products arrive at your storage sites.

The biodegradability of the treated products had been independently verified by approved independent laboratories in the United States using testing methods ASTM D 5511 and ASTM D 5526. From the testings conducted, the treated products, depending on the form and type of plastic will biodegrade in 1 to 5 years as compared to centuries for untreated products. On our own, Pro-Lock has also tested and verified the properties of the products in comparison with untreated products and found that the addition of the biodegradable additives does not affect the physical and marking properties.
