Advantages of PLA

PLA polylactic acid

Polylactic acid plastic products have good biodegradability. After use they can be fully composted in nature. It turns into carbon dioxide and water, thus achieving a natural green cycle. Therefore, polylactic acid has been considered as the most promising environmentally friendly material to replace petroleum-based plastics.


In addition to excellent biodegradability, the transparency and mechanical properties of polylactic acid are similar to those of petroleum-based polymers such as polystyrene and polyethylene terephthalate. Polylactic acid has good processing and molding properties. It can be processed by injection molding, foaming, extrusion molding, blown film molding, foam molding and other methods. With good antibacterial properties, it can be widely used in plastic products, textile fibers, packaging materials, medical and health fields. The market prospect is very broad.

PLA material has the advantages of environmental protection, energy saving and emission reduction and renewable raw materials. They can not only fundamentally solve the problem of white pollution, but also greatly reduce the fuel consumption of the materials industry and reduce the pressure on petrochemical resources.
