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.
