Products/Services for Polylactide
Specialty Polymers and Resins - (482 companies)Specialty polymers and resins are proprietary polymers, resins, monomers and intermediates. They include products that are based on proprietary curing technologies or chemistries, or that are designed for specialized applications.Show More
Polymers and Plastic Resins - (945 companies)Polymers and plastic materials are organic, synthetic or processed polymers that are supplied as raw materials. They typically consist of thermoplastic or thermosetting resins in the form of pellets, powders or liquid resins. These materials can then be molded into a variety of shapes for a wide range of uses.Show More
Fibers and Filaments - (192 companies)Fibers and filaments consist of bulk, chopped fibers or strands and continuous monofilaments of materials and are used in reinforcing composites as well as other specialized electrical and thermal applications.Show More
Resins and Compounds - (391 companies)Resins and compounds are used for shape fabrication or bond formation. Types include adhesive, casting, and leveling resins; caulk and grout; and sealants and thread lockers.Show More
Foams and Foam Materials - (564 companies)Foams and foam materials are industrial products made from low density elastomers, plastics and other materials with various structures and porosities.Show More
Foam Insulation - (86 companies)Foam insulation or thermal insulating foams are low density elastomers or polymers, which provide a thermal barrier between components and a heat or cold source.Show More
Polylactic acid, (polylactide, PLA) polymers are being used in a wide range of biomedical, com-mercial, pharmaceutical and academic applica-tions due to their biocompatibility and biodegra-dability. Applications include stents, sutures and a wide range of uses in food packaging and dis-posable...
...devices, a great deal of research continues on polyanhydrides, polyorthoesters, polyphosphazenes, and other biodegradable polymers. A biodegradable intravascular stent prototype is molded from a blend of polylactide and trimethylene carbonate. Photo: Cordis Corp. Prototype Molded by Tesco Associates, Inc...
...of consumer packaging made from common plastics such as PET and polypropylene (PP) to those associated with polylactide (PLA), a widely used corn-based plastic. Athena's study looked strictly at five packaging items: 16-oz cold-drink cups, two-piece deli containers, envelope window film, foam meat...
...with two new biocontent polycarbonate blends containing polylactide (PLA), a polymer derived from plant materials. Makroblend BC250 and BC400 are general-purpose grades that contain 25 and 40% PLA, respectively. The biocontent grades can serve in applications such as cell phones and smart phones...
