JSR Announces Significant Improvements in Polylactic Acid-Based Bioplastic

JSR declared that its polylactic acid-based bioplastic called ‘BIOLLOY’ has shown considerable enhancements in terms of important properties and has demonstrated positive results in thin wall applications. The company has applied for a ‘BIOLLOY’ trademark.

The BIOLLOY shows enhanced compatibility with a petroleum-based plastic manufactured by using JSR's proprietary technologies and polylactic acid, a material derived from plants. This resulted in significant enhancement in formability performance, shock resistance and post-molding appearance to the bioplastic.

The BIOLLOY is strong and un-breakable, a common problem in traditional bioplastics. These improved properties could decrease the required resin quantity, resulting in lightweight moldings and low production cost.

The proportion of polylactic acid can be altered between 5% and 80% in order to obtain a desired flowability for the processing techniques, including film, extrusion, blow molding and injection molding.

JSR now distributes BIOLLOY that consists of polyolefin-based plastics, including polyethylene and polypropylene, and alloys of ABS plastics. Based on its continuous development efforts, the company anticipates the sale of thermoplastic materials. The production and coloring processes will be done by the company to secure continuous supply of superior quality products. JSR’s entity, Techno Polymer, produces the combination of BIOLLOY and ABS plastic.
