Total Corbion PLA at Chinaplas

Total Corbion PLA will showcase partner applications based on Luminy Poly Lactic Acid (PLA) resins at Chinaplas on 24th – 27th April.


PLA, a bio based and biodegradable polymer is made from annually renewable resources and offers a reduced carbon footprint versus traditional plastics.

The Luminy PLA portfolio includes high heat and standard PLA grades, used in a wide range of markets from packaging to durable consumer goods and electronics.

Pack and Proper has developed a bioplastic thermoformed black platter for attractive presentation of foods such as cheese and sushi. Made from Luminy PLA it has been designed to exhibit a slate appearance due to its surface shape.

Other examples of PLA applications that will be on display include PLA injection moulded speaker housings by Os-Tech and Usher, PLA toys by GRABIO, DJ Toys and Genius Toy Taiwan, PLA-lined paper cups from Totempak, single-use PLA aprons from Gaia and PLA coffee cup lids from WinGram.

Visitors will be able to get a cup of coffee brewed from a PLA coffee capsule and served in a PLA cup which demonstrates the high heat capabilities of Luminy PLA at booth 6.2J77.
