R&F Chemical will focus on product development and engineering while also acting as exclusive South Korean importer and master distributor for BioLogiQ's portfolio of NuPlastiQ®BioPolymers.
Brad LaPray, president and founder of BioLogiQ stated that, "R&F Chemical is highly respected as a technological leader in the development and production of high-performance and highly sustainable plastic films. We are both thrilled and honored to have them work with us to make our bio-based products available in South Korea."
Peter Park, CEO of R&F Chemical added that, "BioLogiQ's NuPlastiQ resins have the capability to significantly improve the environmental profiles of our films and our customers' end products. This is a very exciting and timely opportunity for us."
For reference, BioLogiQ uses a proprietary process to produce NuPlastiQ GP BioPolymers (GP) from natural, renewable resources − plants. GP resins contain 100% USDA Certified Biobased Content, and are ASTM D6400 and EN 13432 certified for compostability. When NuPlastiQ GP is combined with traditional resins, the resulting plastics are stronger and more durable; reduce fossil fuel-based plastic usage and greenhouse gas generation; and maintain the recyclability, compostability, or biodegradability of that traditional polymer (i.e., HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE, PP, TPE, EVOH, PLA, PBAT, PHA).
