Processes

The material can be foamed into packing materials, it can be extruded, and it can be injection-molded in modified conventional machines. Different types of fillers can be used with the system, such as wood flour, lime, clay, or waste paper (and other organic and inorganic fillers). The fillers may be coloured or used in various granulation sizes to change the materialĀ“s external appearance.

The material can be co-injected with other plastic materials such as LDPE, PP, and HDPE. The co-injection process deposits a thin film of plastic material over the top of this material. Co-injection of biodegradable plastics would yield a completely biodegradable item that is cheaper than conventional plastic materials, completely water proof, and coloured to match conventional plastic materials.
