A thermoplastic resin composed primarily of poly(lactic acid) (PLA) 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 mechanically recycled from Ingeo™ 2003D which is a high molecular weight biopolymer grade that processes easily on conventional extrusion equipment. Extruded roll stock is readily thermoformable. This general purpose grade is suitable for a range of applications including 3D printing, food packaging and service ware.
