More heat-tolerant corn-derived plastics

The US Department of Agriculture (USDA) chemist William J. Orts and a team of collaborators from Lapol, LLC, hope to derive a corn based plastics that is more heat-tolerant. By boosting the bioplastics' heat tolerance, the collaboration, under way since 2007, may broaden the range of applications for which corn-derived plastics could be used as an alternative to petroleum-based plastics. The Albany team is developing a product known as a heat-deflection temperature modifier that would be blended with PLA to make it more heat-tolerant.
