Bioplast GS has a bio-based carbon share of 69% according to ISO 16620-2 or ASTM D6866. As with all Biotec products, Bioplast GS 2189 is completely biodegradable. Depending on its thickness, this product is compostable according to EN 13432 at industrial composting facilities.
Bioplast GS 2189 was designed for use in injection moulding but can also be processed on conventional equipment for sheet film extrusion (thermoforming). Additionally, it has a high melt-flow index and can be used as an additive to reduce die pressure and adjust rigidity on blown film extrusion.
This grade is printable, can be coloured with compostable masterbatches, and is sealable (heat sealing, RF, ultra-sonic).
