Teslin Substrate and the Environment

All grades of Teslin substrate are continuous, homogeneous materials composed of polyethylene and inert fillers formed into a sheet with 65% microporous void structure. While Teslin substrate is a recyclable plastic material and is not considered biodegradable; it contributes to environmental stewardship by enabling our customers to produce durable products which conserve resources. Additionally, all grades of Teslin substrate are manufactured under strict corporate guidelines for environmental compliance and waste minimization.
