Biopolymers close the gap on oil-based materials

Material supplier Goodfellow is introducing affordable, high-performance biopolymers. Propelled by the increasing cost of oil as well as improvements in processing technology and product consistency, the company says its range of biopolymers are made up of competitively priced, commercially viable materials with performances that match their oil-based equivalents.

Current applications for biopolymers include many types of packaging (food trays, thin films for wrapping, blown pellets for cushioning fragile goods in transit), as well as non-packaging items such as toothbrushes, razors, pens, cutlery and coffee cup lids.
Additional innovative applications will inevitably follow as the list of sought-after performance characteristics grows with the expanding range of biopolymers available.
