Thermoplastic polymers used in the study were: polylactide (PLA), Ingeo[TM] Biopolymer 3251D produced by NatureWorks LLC, designed for injection molding applications; low-density polyethylene (PE-LD), DOW[TM] LDPE 780E produced by The Dow Chemical Company and high-density polyethylene (PEHD), 2004 TN 52 produced by Total Petrochemicals.
Also elected to the PLA Board, as directors-at-large, were Amita Lonial, assistant library director of the Tacoma (Wash.) Public Library and Toby Greenwalt, director of digital strategy at the Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh (Penn.).
Total Corbion PLA will leverage on the integration with its lactide plant, the monomer required for the production of PLA, that has simultaneously been expanded to a production capacity of 100,000 tonnes per year.
Figures 4 and 5 show the stress-strain diagrams of PLA and PLA/PBAT.
In order to manufacture nanofibres, PLA (Ingeo[TM] Biopolymer 3251D, NatureWorks LLC, USA; [M.sub.w] 90,000-120,000 g [mol.sup.-1], polydispersity index = 1.79) was used.
In the present work, in contrast to the known procedure for preparation of PLA-based block copolymers combining ROP of lactide and controllable radical polymerization, we synthesized PLA-PDMAEMA block copolymers via the aminolysis reaction of PLA chains and RAFT polymerization of DMAEMA for the first time.
The blend ratios of PLA to PCL of 90/10 and 70/30 (weight percent) were used in the study, and the amount of GMA content was fixed to 3 parts per hundred parts of resin (phr) based on the total mass of PLA and PCL.
The exercise will help in developing a combined response by PN and PLA (N) in the face of conventional as well as an asymmetric threat to maritime interests of both countries.
In experiments, up to 40% starch was melt-blended into PLA along with NCC, at 1% levels, and MDI, at 4% levels, before being pressed into 0.05-mm films.
La degradacion hidrolitica de los compuestos de PLA se realizo durante 96 horas bajo reflujo (usando un montaje en serie de un sistema Soxhlet) de una solucion buffer de fosfato de sodio ([Na.sub.2]HP[O.sub.4]) 0,05 M e hidroxido de sodio 0,1 M, a pH 11.
Further, PLA bioplastic root protection containers have been developed to improve agricultural and environmental efficiency of rubber trees in Thailand: an application that has been nominated for the Bioplastics Award at the upcoming European Bioplastics Conference in Berlin, Germany.
Polylactide (PLA 4042D, Mw = 130 kDa, PDI = 1.46, Tg = 58 [degrees]C, Tm = 152 [degrees]C, density = 1.24 g/cm3) was purchased from NatureWork LLC.
