Overcome bioplastics performance challenges by modifying your biopolymer solutions and formulations.

The need for more sustainable solutions is increasing and the biopolymer usage is growing rapidly. To capture the full potential in this market there are still some challenges to be resolved in terms of performance. Many biopolymers are suffering from brittleness, thermal sensitivity and low moisture resistance. Introducing the caprolactones technology it can offer solutions to overcome these challenges!

Don’t miss the opportunity to learn how you can modify your biopolymer solutions and formulations to obtain improved performance. Starting with the caprolactone chemistry and the impact of using polycaprolactone together with widely used biopolymers such as polylactic acid (PLA) and thermoplastic starch (TPS) highlighting the key performance enhancers.

In the webinar we will look at how you can enhance the mechanical performance by increasing the toughness, improve the flexibility and facilitate the processing. Learn more about polycaprolactone known to be readily biodegradable and still stable in use in three focus segments; paper coatings, bags & films and packaging.

Today the focus is no longer on using one biopolymer only but rather to combine biopolymers to find the best bioplastic solution without trading away sustainability and/or biodegradability. This is what we see as a winning formula where we want to take the lead in developing new bioplastic products and support our customers.
