What is Starch based biodegradable & Compostable resin?
Starch based biodegradable & compostable resin is based on a blend of thermoplastic starch (TPS), biodegradable polyesters and natural plasticizers. This grade of resin is compatibilised to offer a high level of mechanical strength, impact resistance and toughness. The resin is based on corn starch which is a renewable materials. A fully biodegradable and compostable resin Designed to be used for film blowing. The resin can be fully and safely composted at home. Complies with European Standard EN13432, USA Standard ASTM D6400. Australian Standard AS4736, AS5810. The unique advantage of our HW-01 is the low density of only 1.09.
This product sourced from Starch, our range is a natural progression in our commitment to make a positive impact on the world around us.
In general, starch-based biodegradable & Compostable resin are more cost competitive than alternative bioplastics. They can accommodate a wide range of physical properties that alternative bioplastics lack, such as tensile strength and heat tolerance.
