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 beboth mechanically and chemically recycled.
This specialised grade is characterised by its mechanical strength, surface gloss and opacity. It is well-suited for durable applications and can be readily processed by injection moulding.
