Functional Bioplastics Made from Thermally Conductive PLA Composite
This is a video clip displaying NEC's newest highly functional bioplastics made from plant extracts reducing carbon dioxide emissions and preserving oil resources. The bioplastics compositions are based on polylactic acid (PLA) with the addition of carbon fibers and proprietary bonded material which have desirable properties. These add durability and result in a higher heat conductivity than stainless steel.
Shape memory polyphosphate allows users to freely change its shape and the video show the applications of flexible cell phone handset being developed.
