Tensile strengths of the OWFs produced in this study were measured between 28 and 36MPa (Figure 3).
As there was no Tg observed in the thermograms of OWFs, there was no melting point either.

The orange waste film (OWF) is plant-based and biodegradable and represents competitive mechanical properties with some of the commodity plastics.
So to make life easier for them especially for our OFWs (overseas Filipino workers), who are really supporting our economy, for the information of everybody, the formal remittance of our OFWs are US 25 billion a year and the informal remittance of our OWFs
is around another US 25 billion a year so it's a total of US 50 billion.
