Nanotechnology used in additive to keep PLA clear

Abstract:
A new nanotechnology additive on the market is designed to add strength to polylactic acid (PLA) without diminishing clarity, its manufacturer claims.

Rohm and Haas said its new additive, Paraloid BPM-500, broadens the usability of PLA, a bioplastic used in some "green" packaging.

Over the past five years packaging suppliers have been introducing various forms of biodegradable materials in response to projections that consumers and recycling regulations will drive demand for environmentally-friendly packaging.
