Biodegradable packaging

Biomax Strong is a petrochemical additive for polylactic acid (PLA) packaging.

PLA is biodegradable when composted industrially. It is derived from fermentation of agricultural by-products and considered a sustainable alternative to conventional plastics. However, adoption has been hindered by performance deficiencies compared to conventional plastics, including brittleness and decreased durability. Biomax Strong provides improved toughness. And compared to other tougheners, it also improves container transparency while meeting compost requirements.
