Purac presents solutions for improved heat-resistant PLA at NPE 2012

At the NPE 2012 - the international plastics showcase from April 1 to April 5 in Orlando, USA - Purac will present solutions for improved heat-resistant PLA for injection molding, extrusion and fiber industry.

PLA homo polymers known as PLLA and PDLA which stand at the base of this improved heat performance are now commercially available. Our technology offers the unique possibility to increase the heat-stability of PLA to reach 80 - 150 degrees Celsius. PLA homo polymers can be used to develop a range of heat-resistant PLA products for plastics, films, fibers and foam applications.

To learn more about this technology meet the Purac team at booth 54048 in the "What's hot in the Plastics Technology" zone or contact Francois de Bie (f.de.bie@purac.com).
