Turning to bioplastics is one important way to reduce usage of conventional plastics, but bioplastics can be challenging to process. Capa™ for Bioplastics is stable and predictable, and simplifies your processing, saving you time and money. The improved product performance is a great extra bonus.
1. Easy processing
Adding Capa™ for Bioplastic to the blend facilitates biopolymer processing. There is no need to modify your
production setup for Capa™ products.
2. Low melting point
With the right Capa™ grade, you will reduce the viscosity, even at low temperatures. You will get good dispersion
in the blend as well as a gentler treatment of sensitive materials.
Capa™ for Bioplastic improves flexibility and remains flexible in cold environments.
It has excellent adhesion to paper, cardboard, leather, wood, cotton and other natural fibers.
4. Thermally stable
Capa™ for Bioplastic retains its mechanical properties up to its melting point.
Even higher temperatures are possible when used as a dispersed phase with other biopolymers.
It has excellent hydrolysis resistance and can boost your biopolymer processing.
5. Broad processing window
You can process Capa™ for Bioplastic between 60–250°C (140–482°F).
It is available in various molecular weights, so the viscosity can be tailored to fit your process needs.
6. No pre-drying
Capa™ for Bioplastic is hydrophobic and very stable, both regarding pH and moisture.
Pre-drying is not necessary, which minimizes process time and production costs as well as the need to invest in expensive equipment.
