ECOGEHR® PLA
OVERVIEW
ECOGEHR® PLA
Polylactide and polylactic acid (PLA) is a linear, aliphatic polyester. PLA is obtained from sugar or starch via fermentation by micro-organisms. This means that it is a thermoplastic polymer based on renewable raw materials. PLA materials are CO2- neutral due to the proportion of renewable raw materials.
  • ECOGEHR® PLA-N is a native PLA. It possesses good mechanical properties similar to the polystyrenes, high rigidity, a tensile module of elasticity of up to 3440 MPa, good resistance to polar solvents, is non-toxic and provides good thermal insulation. PLA-N is used in applications in which biodegradability is of particular interest. The material is also translucent in thin-wall applications (a few millimetres). Examples: �� Sinking aids for fence posts �� Tree guards in forestry
  • ECOGEHR® PLA-L is a blend of polylactide, some lignin, natural fatty acids and waxes. It combines good mechanical properties comparable with ABS, high rigidity, a tensile module of elasticity of up to 2770 MPa, good impact strength down to -30°C, good resistance to polar solvents, good thermal insulation and is approved for use with foodstuffs and toys. PLA-L This white bio-polymer is approved for use with both foodstuffs and toys. Examples: �� Mouthpieces for woodwind instruments �� Knobs and buttons �� Industrial brushes �� The foodstuffs processing industry
  • ECOGEHR® PLA-V combines the properties of PLA and a petroleum-based polyester. It possesses high strength, good thermal insulation, is non-toxic, and can be bonded and welded. PLA-V is a relatively soft material and conforms to European foodstuffs approval requirements. Example: �� Writing implements
  • ECOGEHR® PLA-WF is a composite material of polylactide, a small amount of a petroleum-based polyester and wood fibres (30%). It possesses high mechanical strength thanks to the excellent binding of the wood fibres and the polymer blend. This is comparable with standard fibre-reinforced polymers. It also displays good thermal insulation and conforms to the standards governing toys. Thanks to its wood fibre filling, PLA-WF has a woodlike character and can be worked accordingly. This also conforms to the toys standard EN 71-3. Example: �� Wooden toys
