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.
Specially designed for injection moulding with good mechanical properties, including toughness, and surface gloss, it is suitable for processing of opaque plastic products.
