Developing thermoplastic starch (TPS)

Business opportunity

There is rising demand to replace thermoplastic materials with materials from renewable sources for applications such as packaging and agricultural films.

At AIMPLAS we have developed plastic materials based on starch from legumes (corn, wheat, potatoes, peas, etc.) obtained in a patented process that generates thermoplastic starch (TPS) with the processability and end-product properties required for packaging and agricultural film sectors.

The advantages of this material are:

  • Greater sustainability as it comes from renewable sources.
  • Low oxygen permeability for use in containers that need this.

AIMPLAS provides you with our TPS so you can enhance the sustainability of your packaging or films without giving up the properties of traditional materials.
