Biobased materials are those that are derived from natural plant starches. These advanced biobased plastics such as PLA and PHA can be surprisingly cost competitive while also offering a range of benefits for the production process, application and the environment.
Biobased Material Offerings
Polylactide (PLA) is a transparent plastic produced from corn or dextrose that can easily be thermoformed for a wide range of applications.
Produced in nature by bacterial fermentation of sugar or lipids, PHA can be formulated in a variety of ways in order to produce different properties. PHA is also unique in that it can be a biodegradable material.
TerraPET is a proprietary blend of PET and 30% plant based material, ideal for blisters, clamshells, trays and other thermoformed applications.
