PLA, PBAT and PBS included in OKCHEM Distribution Project.
Bio-degradation is a chemical process during which microorganisms that are available in the environment convert materials into natural substances such as water, carbon dioxide, and compost (artificial additives are not needed). Plastics that are both bio-based and biodegradable, such as PLA and PHA or PBS; Plastics that are based on fossil resources and are biodegradable, such as PBAT.
Please check the product details below.
1. Biodegradable PLA Poly Lactic Acid Resin
PLA takes annually renewable resources – corn, cassava and other plants as raw material. After fermentation by microorganisms, lactic acid will be extracted, then PLA will be produced through a process of refining, dehydration polymerization, high temperature pyrolysis and final polymerization. PLA has excellent biodegradable property. After disposal, within one year, it can be degraded into carbon dioxide and water by microorganisms in the soil, and do no harm to our environment. PLA is a kind of aliphatic polyester with basic characteristics of general micromolecule materials. PLA has good machanical properties, low shrinkage, and is competent to the application of most synthetic plastics, also it's widely used in the production of package materials, disposable tableware, household electrical appliance shell, fiber, 3D supplies etc.
Because PLA derives from renewable plant resources but not the petroleum-based traditional plastics, it can truly realize energy-saving and environmental protection, and PLA is considered to be the most promising new "ecological material".
