Bio-Flex® grades are made up of copolyester and PLA. Depending on the grade, they have a high raw material content from renewable sources. They have also been certified for compostability (EN13432, DIN Certco).


Their main characteristics are:


  • A wide range of applications
  • Grades with good transparency and medium-barrier properties
  • Grades approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration for use in contact with food


Biograde® grades are made of cellulose and have been developed primarily for injection applications. Like Bio-Flex®, they have a high renewable raw material content and have been certified for compostability.


Their main characteristics are:


  • Used in injection molding
  •  Properties comparable to polystyrene (rigid and, depending on the grade, transparent)
  • Highly resistant to deformation under heat (up to 115°C)
  • Grades approved for contact with food (U.S. Food and Drug Administration)
