Teknor Apex: TPS, PP produce "greener" containers
Terraloy® Formulations from Teknor Apex use blends of thermoplastic starch (TPS) and polypropylene (PP) to enable processors to incorporate high levels of both bio-based and recycled content into their products while obtaining physical properties comparable to those of virgin PP.
For use in injection molded containers, extruded sheet, and blow molded jars and bottles. The new blends are available in the Terraloy® BP-13020 series of ready-to-process compounds, each with a combined 95% content consisting of TPS and recycled PP; and as Terraloy® MB-13020 masterbatches, which can be let down at a 1:1 ratio in virgin PP for a combined 47% bio-based and recyclate content.
