This group of products consisting of a smart series of biobased and biodegradable end compounds, suitable for direct conversion by the various known techniques. The name of the material is derived from the Latin words Solanum Tuberosum, which means potato. The material is based on reclaimed side stream starch from the potato processing industry and/or grain, root or seed flour-based resources. It is special tailored for various converting methods and is a renewable alternative for various petroleum-based plastic applications, e.g.. PS, PP, PE and PVC. The compounds can be used directly for the production of bioplastic products with the most common converting methods with respect to injection moulding, sheet and profile extrusion, thermoforming and extrusion film casting or blowing products and processes. The products have a “natural” look and feel.
The current commercial grades are offered as follows:
- Injection & compression moulding
- Sheet and profile extrusion
- Blown and cast film extrusion
