Bioplastics and concretely biodegradable plastics have increase their presence in our common life. The main reason has been the need of more sustainable materials, regulations and marketing strategies.
Nevertheless achieving the best performance with biodegradable polymers is not an easy issue, improvements like impact strength, thermal resistance, flexibility, stiffness or flame retardancy are still a challenge, especially for the new bioplastics that are being developed recently.
In order solve these needs AIMPLAS has developed solutions in that critical issues for bioplastic improvement based on:
AIMPLAS is working with bioplastics since 2000 mainly in two lines, modification of existing materials like PLA, starch based, PBS, PHA-PHB, PVOH etc.., with all kind of additives, natural and synthetic ones or developing new bioplastics by reactive extrusion, destructurization ( thermoplastic starches) or gelation ( PVOH).
AIMPLAS can help you in:
