Arboblend® combines a great number of material types and a wide range of property profiles. The material granulates are 100% biodegradable and show comparable material properties as conventional plastics with high impact strengths such as ABS.
Depending on the application, Arboblend® materials contain different biopolymers such as polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA), polycaprolactone (PCL), polyester (e.g. bio-PET), starch, polylactic acid (PLA), bio-polyolefins (bio-PE), bio-polyamides (bio-PA), lignin, natural resins, natural waxes, natural oils, natural fatty acids, cellulose, organic additives and natural reinforcing fibres.
Arboblend® materials are designed to be biodegradable or resistant depending on the intended application. Biodegradability is a property that offers an additional benefit in applications such as urns, plant aids, mulch films and many other uses.
