New High-Impact PLA Targets Injection Molding

Purac has developed a PLA compound which it says has heat stability and impact strength comparable to ABS. It’s based on stereo-complex technology using  Purac’s unique L-Lactide and D-Lactide monomers for second generation PLA.

Purac is currently building a 75,000 tons per year lactide plant in Thailand which  is scheduled to start production in the fourth quarter of 2011.
