What is PLA?

PLA(polylactic acid or polylactide) is a biodegradable and bioactive thermoplastic aliphatic polyester derived from renewable resources, such as corn starch.

PLA decomposes into water and carbon dioxide by heat and bacteria and returns to nature. PLA is very eco-friendly material. However, it is weak against heat and impact. There are very limited practical applications.With our 100% plan base additive, we successfully developed high-performance PLA equivalent or superior to general petroleum-derived resin.


Biodegradation of PLA bottle

First of all, PLA will be hydrolyzed and decompose into low molecules.  And then, microbial degradation will start.
