BIOPBS™

BIOPBS™

Derived from renewable material and known for superior biodegradability, BioPBS™ is the truly environmentally-friendly plastic for green products.

Revolutionary in bio properties

BioPBS™ (bio-based polybutylene succinate) is revolutionary in its two-fold bio properties.

BIO-BASED

Using advanced technology from Mitsubishi Chemical Corporation, it is both bio-based and biodegradable plastic.

COMPOSTABLE

Derived from natural resources, such as sugarcane cassava and corn, BioPBS™ is compostable into biomass, carbon dioxide and water. Products made from BioPBS™ can be disposed of along with organic waste. BioPBS™ has no adverse effects on the environment and is naturally compostable, without requiring a specialized composting facility.

CONVENTIONAL CONVERTING EQUIPMENT

You can utilize this advanced material with the same machines you currently own with no additional investment. BioPBS™ can be applied in current extrusion coating machines, blown film extruders, and injection molding machines.

 BioPBS™ Benefits

  • High Service Temperature: Applications made by BioPBS™ can withstand up to 100°C. BioPBS™ can be used for hot beverage cups, boxes, and utensils for freshly cooked food.
  • High performance heat sealability: Having at least same level of seal strength as conventional petro-plastic but achieved with lower temperature. We provide the same performance with less cost in waste disposal expense.
  • Good printability without pre-treatment
  • Compatible with natural fibers
  • Excellent Processability
  • Mutual compatibility with other biodegradable plastics such as polylactic acid (PLA).
    Mixing BioPBS™ with other types of biopolymers can meet customer requirements in a greater degree of properties. 

FOOD CONTACT AND ENVIRONMENTAL Compliance

According to grades and applications, BioPBS™ is registered as food contact approved, and pass the most demanding bio based and compostable requirements.
BioBPS™ is certified by official bodies, please contact your local representative for more details.
