- Partially crystalline structure with defined DSC melting points for envimelt
- High strength and stiffness
- High, but controllable Water Vapour Transmission Rate (WVTR)
- Good processability on conventional injection moulding machines, e.g. for PP
- Easy to dye
Due to the moisture sensitivity of PLA at melt temperatures in the order of approx. 200 °C, we must ensure a maximum moisture content of less than 1,000 ppm before injection moulding. Tests are always recommended to assess the quality of the final product. envimelt ID2108 meets the requirements of the European standard DIN EN 13432 for compostable and biodegradable polymers up to a sheet thickness of 0.447 mm. Depending on the application, higher wall thicknesses are possible after additional testing. The biodegradation process in the soil depends on the specific environment, as the product can be degraded by microorganisms (climate, soil quality, population of microorganisms).
