Higher Stiffness Compared With ABS Offers Potential For Lightweighting Ingeo
High Modulus 49% Increase Ingeo
Medium Modulus 32% Increase Ingeo
High Impact 30% Increase Note: Table made from bar graph.
The three new grades extend the Ingeo
property range and enable users to tune crystallization rate and stiffness (above the glass transition temperature) for custom formulations.
The new grades broaden the application window for Ingeo
use in the production of personal care and hygiene products, filtration media, medical fabrics, civil engineering fabrics and geotextile and agricultural fabrics.
relies on carbon from CO2 feedstock that has been fixed or sequestered through photosynthesis into simple plant sugars, known as first generation materials.
With the formation of the joint venture, NatureWorks plans to commercialize a new family of compounded Ingeo
resin grades, and is immediately offering samples of developmental grades aimed at thermoforming and injection-molding processes.
According to Natureworks, manufacturing Ingeo
produces 60 percent less greenhouse gases and uses 50 percent less non-renwable energy than traditional polymers like PET and polystyrene.
NatureWorks notes that compared with racemic lactide's melting point of nearly 130[degrees]C, and L- and D-lactide's 97[degrees]C, Ingeo
M700's melting point is below 60[degrees]C.
