White Paper

High Performance Engineered Biopolymers Via Compounding

[cover shot]

Within the past several years, biopolymers have made tremendous inroads in replacing traditional petroleum derived polymers in several commercial applications. However, due to the physical performance limitations of the biopolymers, these commercial inroads have been largely limited to commodity applications.

This white paper explores how melt compounding can be used to impart high performance into biopolymers and allow them to be suitable for more demanding semi-durable engineered applications.

Topics discussed include:

  • Upgrading impact resistance
  • Improving thermal performance
  • Increasing mechanical properties
