A thermoplastic resin composed primarily of poly(lactic acid) which is both renewable and industrially compostable. It is produced from the fermentation of sugar or corn to produce lactic acid, followed by polymerisation via the intermediate lactide. It has a considerably lower carbon footprint than fossil-fuel based plastics and can be both mechanically and chemically recycled.
This grade has been specifically developed to enhance PLA's film-forming properties resulting in a material with higher tensile elongation and flexibility. In addition to its application in flexible packaging it is also suitable for 3D printing and textiles. It is food contact acceptable and can be readily processed by both extrusion and thermoforming.
