Polymer Polylactic Acid

Polymer Polylactic Acid

What It Is & Characteristics

Polylactic Acid (PLA) is a bio-based material that is built by transforming carbon dioxide present in plants like corn and sugar cane into a polymer. While this polymer has its limitations both in supply and in physical properties, it can be a perfect fit in applications where high use temperature is not an issue.

Typical Uses

PLA is used for items such as gift cards, non-microwaveable take-out containers and stadium room temperature food containers (ex. nacho trays) and drinkware. If collected properly, PLA materials can be composted.

Sustainability. The Key To Future Value.

We have placed sustainability, environment, social and governance (ESG) issues at the very center of our focus. Not simply to comply with regulations and standards, but to drive true change that transforms tomorrow. This, we believe, is how real value is created.
