PLA Raw Material Description

PLA is extracted from corn, cassava, and other craps by microbial fermentation, and then, refining, dehydration oligomerization, high-temperature depolymerization, and polymerization. There is no pollution in the production process of polylactic acid, and the product can be biodegraded to realize the circulation in nature, so it is an ideal green polymer material.

PLA is the abbreviation of biodegradable plastic polylactic acid (PLA), the full name is polylactic acid.

PLA also known as polylactide (polylactide), belongs to the polyester family. Polylactic acid is a polymer obtained from the polymerization of lactic acid as the main raw material.

The raw material is well sourced and renewable, mainly from maize and cassava. The production process of PLA is pollution-free and the product is biodegradable.

It is an ideal green polymer because it can be recycled in nature.

PLA is thermally stable, with a processing temperature of 170-230°C. It has good solvent resistance and can be processed in a variety of ways, such as extrusion, and spinning.

It can be processed in various ways, such as extrusion, spinning, biaxial stretching, and injection blow molding. The products made from PLA are biodegradable and have good biocompatibility, gloss, transparency, feel and heat resistance.

In addition to being biodegradable, PLA has good biocompatibility, gloss, transparency, feel and heat resistance, as well as being resistant to bacteria, fire and UV.

It is currently used in clothing (underwear, outerwear), industry (construction, agriculture, forestry, paper), and health care.

Benefits of PLA Raw Material

  1. PLA is easy to process and has a very wide range of applications. It can be used to process a wide range of plastic products from industrial to residential, packaged food, fast food lunch boxes, non-woven fabrics, and industrial and residential cloths.
  2. Good compatibility and degradability.PLA is also used in a wide range of pharmaceutical applications, such as disposable infusion sets, non-disposable surgical sutures, and low molecular PLA as a slow-release packaging agent for drugs.
  3. Viruses and molds tend to adhere to the surface of biodegradable plastics, raising safety and hygiene concerns, however, PLA is the only biodegradable plastic with excellent anti-bacterial and anti-mold properties.
