Biograde® V 2091

Bioplastics' producer FKuR Kunststoff GmbH will be presenting a wide range of biodegradable, biobased and natural fiber reinforced compounds at Fakuma 2011, in hall 5, booth 5211. Currently, these compounds offer a wide range of possibilities. Bioplastics are a unique class of materials which are based on renewable resources or which enable the biodegradability of products made from these polymers.

FKuR now presents its further developments of the cellulose acetate based Biograde® products. The highlight of this development is Biograde® V 2091 which is a completely transparent injection moldable grade that has been developed for thin wall parts with long flow paths. Along with its high transparency, Biograde® V 2091 stands out due to its smooth and shiny surface. Moreover, especially for thin walled parts, it out performs standard polystyrene (PS) as to flexibility and heat distortion temperature.

With these extended properties, the product line Biograde® sets new standards and allows for the realization of diverse applications within the electronic and household appliances sector.
