Perstorp introduces renewable Capa™ for bioplastic applications. The product enables freedom to design polymers that are flexible or hard, transparent or crystalline, tough or rigid, and with a targeted melting point and polarity. According to the vendor, renewable Capa has been evaluated in terms of compostability and bio-based content and is also certified as bio-based by the independent Belgian certification body Vinçotte.

Perstorp continues to focus its efforts on three fast-growing bioplastic segments: paper coatings, bags and films, and packaging. Capa for bioplastics is a biopolymer enhancer that offers stability and compatibility, improved mechanical properties, flexibility at low temperatures, and biodegradability. This effort is supported by Perstorp’s full industrial production and pilot facilities in Warrington, U.K., and its modern Swedish innovation center in Perstorp for bioplastic formulations.
