Timeplast Water Soluble Plastic Features & Benefits

Product Highlights

Water Soluble

Timeplast goes away faster, when faster is needed.

Biodegradability or compostability can no longer be accepted as the gold standard for green labeling; Water Solubility should be. Timeplast does not require soil bacteria, oxygen or heat to disintegrate, it only needs water. The more biodiversity an ecosystem has, the more water will be present, which means that Timeplast goes away faster, when faster is needed, just like Nature intended.


Building plastics from materials found in the Biosphere

Earth is divided in several layers, we live in the Biosphere; yet fossil-based plastics come from the Lithosphere. Artificially bringing up ultra-high molecular weight materials such as Petroleum from the Lithosphere causes tremendous disruptions, biomagnification and eventually higher and higher toxicity levels in all water sources. Building plastics from materials found in the Biosphere is the right thing to do.

Built-in Limited Water Resistance

  • Water soluble materials have existed for a long time, but making one that has a high molecular weight, is cost effective and water soluble at the same time had been impossible; which is the main story behind other previous water soluble plastics not being able to substitute fossil-based applications and their inability to maintain market’s required quality while retaining water solubility
  •  That’s why typical water soluble materials are excluded to either only film or very thin applications, or haven’t been able to become mainstream in the substitution of conventional plastics.
  • Timeplast has a high molecular weight, which makes it able to be formed into rigid, thick and high-quality applications while maintaining its water solubility, which makes Timeplast one of a kind and truly capable of fossil-based plastic substitution.


Key Points

  • Timeplast comes in three forms; crystals, small and large pellets
  • Timeplast can be used as conventional plastic for rigid applications that require injection molding capabilities
  • Timeplast can even be extruded into very strong and light-weight applications, including expanded pieces to substitute fossil-based Polystyrene foam; aka Styrofoam

Applications & Uses

Molding Procedure
  1. Prepare the injection molding machine by purging it with virgin polypropylene completely until clean and empty.
  2. Set the temperatures for running the Timeplast water soluble resin:
    • Feed throat and first heater zone - 150 degrees C.
    • Second, middle, and front screw (barrel zone) - 195 degrees C.
    • Third heating zone (nozzle zone) - 200 degrees C.
  3. Prime the machine with the Timeplast resin just before running parts.
  4. It is expected that parts will be strong and may display a yellowish tint with minor splay marks.
    • Coloring can be added, as long as it's a water soluble color with no polymeric carriers or masterbatch, preferably liquid color.
  5. It is important to purge the machine after running the product with virgin polypropylene.
Typical Applications

Bio-based resin substitute for typical fossil-based polymers used in extrusion, Thermoforming, or injection molding of single use plastic products.
