CORBION: Luminy PLA resins introduced at K 2016 / PLA containers to protect rubber tree roots up for industry award / PLA-PBS biocompound promoted for food applications
Corbion and German firm Succinity (Dusseldorf; www.succinity.com) are also promoting a model biopolymer compound of PLA and PBS that is said to offer strong heat resistance, balanced mechanical properties, biodegradability and a high biorenewable content. The blended properties of the two resins could be of interest in applications such as food serviceware, food packaging and coffee capsules.
