High-Performance PLA Polymer Blend Expands Bioplastics' Potential
from Packaging Digest
Floreon’s patented polymer formulation yields PLA-based polymer blends suitable for thermoformed and injection-molded packaging that also show promise for film and blow-molding operations. Bioplastic technology company Floreon Transforming Packaging Ltd, Hull, U.K., has been granted a patent for Floreon, a biodegradable, polyester-based polymer blend of a standard bioplastic, polylactic acid. The patented technology yields a resin that is much tougher and easier to process than current materials and has the potential to expand the uses of bioplastics.
