Technical DataSheet | Supplied by Biotec

BIOPLAST 500 is a plasticizer-free thermoplastic starch. It contains natural potato starch and other biologically sourced polymers. Suitable for processing by blown film extrusion. It has an excellent shelf life, helps produce items that are completely biodegradable in an industrial or domestic composting environment. Is recyclable and can be incinerated. Films made with it are printable by flexographic and offset printing without pre-treatment, heat sealable, have a soft touch and can be colored with master batches. Films mainly consist of renewable raw material and can be drawn down to below 15 μm. Recommended for short life packaging, multi-use carrier and loop-handle bags, single-use bio-waste bags, bin liners and agricultural films. Contains 58% of renewable raw material and has a bio-based carbon share of 51% according to ASTM D6866. Certified and registered by Vinçotte according to EN 13432 with the ‘OK compost’ and ‘seedling’ logo.
