Biopolymers are an exciting young group of materials in plastics technology and have become more and more important in recent years. Biopolymers owe this to their sustainable image and their special properties, such as compostability or oxygen and water vapor permeability.
Nevertheless, the process behavior of these bioplastics often proves to be challenging and the mechanical properties often require modification.

We are happy to support you in all matters and develop your tailor-made biopolymer together with you.
