Bioplast® 300

Sold by BIOTEC
BIOPLAST 300 is a plasticizer-free, thermoplastic material that contains natural potato starch and other biologically sourced polymers. The biobased carbon share of the formulation exceeds 30%. BIOPLAST 300 is suitable for blown-film extrusion applications, particularly ultra-light weight films with a thickness of approx. 10 µm. Bags e.g. for fruit and vegetables and films like mailing films made of BIOPLAST 300 are fully biodegradable and compostable according to EN 13432, and have achieved the “OK compost HOME” certification awarded by TÜV AUSTRIA Belgium.

Regulatory & Compliance

Certifications & Compliance

Products made of BIOPLAST 300 are completely biodegradable and, depending on their thickness, compostable. The material is certified by TÜV AUSTRIA Belgium according to EN 13432 awarding the “OK compost INDUSTRIAL” logo.o. The material is home compostable according to the French norm NF T 51-800. Therefore products made of BIOPLAST 300, depending on their thickness, can be disposed of in a well maintained domestic composting unit.

Technical Details & Test Data

Organic Waste Collection

As a result of their compostability and renewable raw material content, fruit and vegetable bags and bin-liners produced from BIOPLAST 300 are suitable for the collection of organic waste. Additionally bags made of BIOPLAST 300 off er a high carbon share and are therefore suitable in markets where a high carbon share is demanded.

Packaging & Availability

Storage & Handling

Storage and Handling

The granules should be stored under dry and ambient conditions in the closed PE-inliner bag. During storage the products can take up humidity. Once a bag or an octabin is opened, the material should be processed without delay
