Bio-Fed has launched a new version of its M·VERA GP1012 bioplastic compound for injection moulding. The compound, a member of the company’s M-Vera portfolio of renewably sourced sustainable materials, is a further development of the previous versions, the company announced.
Part of Akro-Plast GmbH, Bio-Fed specialises in innovative and application-oriented biocompounds. The company offers a range of both biodegradable and durable compounds, depending on the customer’s need, which can be wholly or partly renewably sourced.
According to Bio-Fed, the new M·Vera GP1012 injection moulding grade is particularly suitable for applications requiring high stiffness - tensile modulus 2,000 MPa – such as for a wide range of household articles, toys, and packaging. Coffee capsules are another application, as the material is approved for food-contact applications.
“Our customers are increasingly demanding products that meet all the above-mentioned mechanical properties as well as the raw material origin and a corresponding end-of-life scenario,” Ulf Malcharczik, business development manager at Bio-Fed.
This new compound is composed of almost 100% high-quality, renewable raw materials and is excellently suited for the production of rigid objects.
