Features at a glance
Bioplast 500 A is a versatile plant-based biopolymer with many applications. Here are some of the blown film applications:
Ultra-light single-use bags
Bioplast 500 A has a bio-based carbon share of at least 57% according to ISO 16620-2 or ASTM D6866. As with all Biotec products, Bioplast 500 A is completely biodegradable. Depending on its thickness, this product is compostable according to EN13432 at both industrial composting facilities and under well-managed home composting conditions (NF T51-800).
Bioplast 500 A was designed to be processed on conventional equipment for blown film extrusion (LDPE or LLDPE). This grade is printable, can be coloured with compostable masterbatches, and is sealable (heat sealing, RF, ultra-sonic).
