The ABMcomposite technology offers high-performance degradable PLA-based technical ArcBiox™ plastics and composites, which can compete with many oil-based plastics, such as glass-reinforced PA, PP, PC, and PBT. New high heat resistant grades can withstand temperatures of up to 160 °C under load, thus making it suitable for use in many automotive and electronic applications.
The ABMcomposite technology enables degradable long glass fiber reinforced high heat and impact modified products, which are also fully degradable in an industrial composting environment. PLA and its blends with other degradable resins offer one of the smallest carbon footprints.
ABMcomposite PLA-based technical plastics and composites are degradable in an industrial compost environment, as are all of our additives. The target industries for ABMcomposite technology are automotive, consumer electronics and furniture industry.
