Cereplast, Inc. has unveiled a new Cereplast Hybrid Resins® grade -- Hybrid 106D -- a high starch, high melt flow polypropylene (PP) starch compound. Hybrid 106D is a proprietary formulation of high quality PP and starch blend that offers a unique combination of mechanical properties, ease of processing, and a highly aesthetic surface. Designed to have an excellent balance between impact strength, rigidity, and processability, Hybrid 106D also provides a significantly lower carbon footprint compared to conventional PP.
Cereplast Hybrid Resins products are proprietary biobased compounds containing a significant amount of renewable, ecologically sound sources such as industrial starches from corn, tapioca and potatoes, which are compounded on state-of-the-art mixing equipment. The reduction in petroleum-based plastic content compared to conventional plastics provides a significant carbon footprint reduction in the final product. Hybrid 106D can be processed on existing conventional electric and hydraulic reciprocating screw injection molding machines for the manufacture of consumer goods, furniture, toys, fashion accessories, packaging, automotive applications and more.
