Film and sheets of BIOFRONT highly heat-resistant bioplastic open up many new possibilities

Film and sheet versions of its BIOFRONT highly heat-resistant bioplastic, which already is available as fiber and resin, developed by Teijin Limited opens up many new possibilities for this versatile, plant-based, high-performance bioplastic. BIOFRONT film and sheet exhibit high transmission properties due to a unique stereocomplex crystalline structure achieved with high-purity L-lactate and D-lactate polymer made from renewable plant resources. These film and sheet can be used for a wide range of applications, including packaging and printing substrate requiring high transmission and strength; optical film requiring high transmission, low heat-shrinkage and optical isotropy (uniform properties in all directions); white reflective film and printing substrate requiring strong light scattering; transparent substrate, decorative film, insert molding and blister packaging requiring high transparency and non-crystalline properties. BIOFRONT has a melting point of at least 210Ž, which is significantly higher than that of conventional bioplastic. It also has good hydrolytic stability and achieves semi-crystallization in just 20-25% of the time required by conventional bioplastic, making it an excellent choice for molded plastic, clothing and interior materials.
