Bagasse trays are made from a renewable resource. This product can be made from plant-based materials rather than using plastics or packing paper.
Bagasse is the waste matter that results from sugarcane processing. The juice is removed from the original plant through pulping, and the fiber remains are regarded as Bagasse.
Sugarcane bagasse is a non-wood fiber. It's flexible and lightweight.
The great thing about this product is the quality of raw materials used in trays production. It is not contaminated with chemical additives, dyes, and adhesives.
· Designed to be 100% recyclable when finished
· Designed to be 100% compostable and biodegradable
· Maximum stiffness and durability. Able to withstand the rigors of daily use in an outdoor environment.
· You can use a bagasse tray in cooling and warming food materials either in the refrigerator and oven.
· Able to withstand water and grease stains.
· Bagasse trays are made from a sturdier, more durable material than typical paper or plastic trays.
· Their thermal conductivity makes them ideal for keeping foods warm and moist.
· Highly resistant and able to withstand temperatures up to 95° Celsius
· Doesn't break down like other compost materials. It is only after several weeks of exposure to the elements that this material begins to decompose.
The manufacturing process of Bagasse Trays:
The process you can use to manufacture bagasse trays is listed below:
· Soaking the bagasse pulp board and pumping through a hydraulic press. Then, it goes into a mixing tank and will add water and oil in a formulator, and later it goes on to a forming machine, which dewaters the pulp.
· Forming is converting an intermediate product (made out of pulp or paper) into a finished product. Forming is used to cool and solidify the pulp. The process involves loading the paper into either heated or cooled molds (or presses) and then removing the product from the mold.
· Steam-assisted drying is an intensive method that utilizes steam for drying. It can minimize the amount of time and energy spent on drying, allowing for a more efficient process to enhance environmental sustainability.
· A precision machining center takes out the product from the machine. The product is then moved into a trimming station, where it's carefully trimmed and sterilized for quality assurance.
· Now the product is ready for shipping or storage.
