Description

BioPolymer is a unique type of thermoplastic starch (TPS) resin made from natural, renewable agricultural resources such as potatoes, corn, and cassava and is a 100% USDA Certified Bio-based product.

One of the NuPlastiQ® BC family of biodegradable BioPolymers designed for compostable films and bags. Fully compounded and ready for film production.

Due to NuPlastiQ’s unique properties, it can be homogenously blended with other fossil-based plastics (such as PE, PP & PS) or bio-based materials (such as PLA, PBAT and PHA) to create NuPlastiQ BioBlends that increase the sustainability of all plastic products.

Because of its strength, bags made with 25% NuPlastiQ and 75% PE that are downgauged by 30% result in 50% less fossil fuel feedstocks being used to make the bags. Production of NuPlastiQ also generates 80% less CO2 than traditional resins made from fossil-fuel.
