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...

...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...

...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...

...of as one that would "do no harm." The operative principle was that of inertness as reflected, for example, in the definition of as "the quality of not having toxic or injurious effects on biological systems. " A cartilage repair unit injection molded from biodegradable polylactide (PLA). When...

...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...
