What is polylactic acid (PLA)?
PLA is not plastic. It is derived from natural, from corn, cassava and other plants to extract starch, microbial fermentation of lactic acid, lactic acid through advanced polymerization process, and ultimately generate 100% green and safe new polymer materials – polylactic acid (ie PLA). The products produced by this material are safe and safe, non-toxic and odorless, and have no harm to the human body. In addition, if the products are discarded under composting conditions, they can be completely decomposed by microorganisms and finally produce carbon dioxide and water, The environment does not cause any pollution, so PLA is recognized as the 21st century low-carbon environmental protection, sustainable development of the “green material.”
Polylactic acid (PLA) characteristics:
1, extraordinary biodegradability
Polylactic acid has good biodegradability, its products are discarded, in the composting conditions can be microbial decomposition, the final production of carbon dioxide and water, do not pollute the environment. Is recognized as environmentally friendly materials.
2, excellent physical and mechanical properties
Polylactic acid is a plastic material, suitable for blow molding, blistering, injection molding, spinning and other processing methods, can produce space bottles, fast food lunch boxes, cutlery, nonwovens and other products, its superior performance processing, Very broad.
3, excellent security
Polylactic acid derived from plants, rather than oil, does not contain any toxic and hazardous substances, such as plasticizers, heavy metals, melamine, formaldehyde, bisphenol A, the human body without any harm, the production of products by the vast number of consumers Praise.
