Fantastic plastic

PLA (Poly Lactic Acid) bioplastics can replace traditional oil-based plastics like melamine, polypropylene (PP) and Polyvinylchloride (PVC) in a range of consumer goods from serviceware to toys. The latest blends combine high gloss and excellent colorability with microwave and dishwasher resistance. They also result in excellent scratch resistance, impact resistance and maintain good processing economics.

For consumer goods such as serviceware and toys, high heat PLA based on our lactides offers an opportunity to move away from oil based plastics and instead opt for a plant-based resin. Consumers are becoming increasingly aware of their impact on our planet and are starting to appreciate more environmentally friendly alternatives. This gives brandowners a unique opportunity to meet consumer demand, increase corporate sustainability and improve resource efficiency.

 

 

Sustainability advantges of PLA

PLA offers a sustainability win-win to both brandowners and consumers.

  • For brandowners, PLA products are biobased; enabling products and packaging with a reduced carbon footprint.
  • For consumers, the multiple end-of-life options offered by PLA empowers them to reduce their environmental impact.

For consumer products, PLA boasts the option to create 100% biobased products, which at their end-of-life could be mechanically recycled. An appealing and compelling benefit.
