PCCA can help you engineer the perfect biobased and sustainable solutions
No matter what process and what resins you use to achieve your “green” goals, Primex Color, Compounding & Additives has a solution to help you.
Many OEMs and retailers now require that plastics manufacturers reduce the content of virgin petrochemicals in components and end products. Bioplastics are derived from renewable biological resources such as corn, vegetable oils, soybeans, wood, grasses, or sugarcane.
THE MOST COMMON BIOBASED MATERIALS USED IN PLASTIC PRODUCTION:
PLA (polylactic acid)
A polyester derived from renewable biomass, typically fermented plant starch such as corn, cassava, sugarcane or sugar beet pulp
PBS (polybutylene succinate)
A biodegradable aliphatic polyester with properties that are comparable to polypropylene
Biodegradable polyesters produced in nature by numerous microorganisms, including through bacterial fermentation of sugar or lipids
PBAT (polybutylene adipate terephthalate)
A biodegradable random copolymer, specifically, a copolyester of adipic acid
