All biopolymer compounds are bio-based, biodegradable or both.
Our compounds are either naturally biodegradable in all conditions (e.g. landfill, soil, maritime environments) or compostable in controlled conditions (e.g. industrial compost).
Bioblend L grades are developed for rigid injection moulding applications. The grades can be crystallised/annealed in order to have the final part heat-stable at temperatures up to 110°C. Bioblend LT grades are compostable/biodegradable in controlled conditions (e.g. industrial compost) according EN 13432 and ASTM D6400.
Natureblend L grades are designed to be completely compostable/biodegradable (microbial and enzymatic degradation) in controlled disposal conditions (e.g. industrial compost). The grade offers a significant reduction in carbon footprint compared to fossil-based plastics.
Natureblend grades can be semi-transparent.
All compounds have improved thermal and mechanical properties with reduced cost levels. To suit different product needs, we have grades with varying mechanical, thermal and processing properties. All grades are ready-to-use feedstock moulding grades (delivered as compounds) or thermforming/compression moulding grades (delivered as sheets, glossy finish, available in sizes up to 2.00 m (in extrusion direction) to 1.30 m (perpendicular), thickness of 0.6 mm to 2.5 mm).
The properties of different grades vary over a wide range and support different kind of manufacturing processes. Bambacore bio-based materials target all kinds of products like thin-walled disposables, storage containers, packaging, houseware parts, toys, gardening parts, agricultural applications and many more.
Bambacore natural fibres are high-performing but still affordable; therefore Bambacore compounds come at cost levels that finally make sense for everybody.
