What is Cellophane?
Cellophane is a thin, transparent sheet made of regenerated cellulose. Its low permeability to air, oils, greases, bacteria, and water makes it useful for food packaging.
It is also a biodegradable material, but highly toxic carbon disulfide is used in most cellophane production.
Cellophane is a generic term in some countries, but in some is a registered trade mark.
How Cellophane is used today
Cellulose film has been manufactured continuously since the mid-1930s and is still used today. As well as packaging a variety of food items, there are also industrial applications, such as a base for such self-adhesive tapes as Sellotape and Scotch Tape, a semi-permeable membrane in a certain type of battery, as dialysis tubing (Visking tubing), and as a release agent in the manufacture of fibreglass and rubber products.
This particular material is the most popular material for manufacturing cigar packaging; its permeability to moisture makes cellophane the perfect product for this application as cigars must be allowed to “breathe” while in storage.
Due to cellophane itself is 100% biodegradable, this has increased its popularity as a food wrapping. Callancote provide this material to businesses nationwide.
