With nearly the same physical characteristics and price point as
traditional polyolefin, Cereplast Hybrid Resins help plastic
manufacturers reduce their reliance on petroleum. Hybrid Resins, also
known as Biopolyolefins, have similar characteristics to traditional
polyolefin, while reducing the petroleum content by 50 to 70 percent, opening
up more applications and uses for bio-based resins. Biopropylene can be used in a variety of manufacturing processing
including injection molding, thermoforming, profile extrusion, and
extrusion blow molding and meets the requirements for toxicity set by
ASTM D 6400-04 specifications.
