PLA plastic nanoengineered for high temperature thermoforming

Abstract:
A compostable plastic made from nanoengineered polylactic acid (PLA) is designed to meet the demands of high-temperature thermoforming packaging.

Standalone PLA has a heat resistance of about 105F (44c), while the new engineered resin from Cereplast incorporates nanotechnology and a patented process that allows it to reach up to 155F (68c).

Cereplast said this week it is marketing its high-temperature resistant CP-TH-6000 at a price lower than conventional styrenic thermoformed resin.
