PLA Blend A

Technical DataSheet | Supplied by Corbion (Purac Group)

PLA Blend A is a bio-based poly lactic acid plastic. Possesses heat resistance similar to PP, PS and ABS, reduced carbon footprint and a multiple end of life options. For Blend A the PLLA homopolymers have been nucleated with a small amount of PDLA homopolymers and a traditional nucleant. Heat performance is increased without adding significant amounts of filler. Used in injection molding applications. Recommended for bioplastic products, consumer electronics, high heat packaging, automotive interiors, apparel and many more.
