Increased thermal resistance of plastic materials through reactive extrusion

Business opportunity

Some plastic materials need greater resistance to temperature for particular end uses: hot water, hot filling, heat treatments, etc.

At AIMPLAS we have increased the thermal resistance of plastic materials by applying reactive extrusion technology.

In the case of PLA we have achieved an increase from 55ºC to over 100ºC as a result of various mineral and natural additives.

This opportunity entails advantages for companies:

  • Using biodegradable materials in applications with temperature resistance requirements.
  • Enhanced sustainability of temperature-resistant containers.
  • Improved traditional material properties.
