Biodolomer® T 900353

Biodolomer® T 900353

Biodolomer® T 900353 is a biodegradable biomaterial developed for the thermoforming process, with focus on drinking cups.

Bidolomer® T 900353 is based on renewable resources.

Biodolomer® T exhibits the following properties:

• High strength and stiffness

• High water vapor transmission rate ( WVTR )

• High melt strength: MFI (190 °C, 2.16 kg): 4 g

• Good thermal stability up to 200 °C

• Good processability on conventional sheet extrusion lines up to 180 °C


Trials are always recommended to assess the quality of the final product.

Certification of Compostability and Biodegrade

Biodolomer® T fulfills the requirements of the existing standards for compostable and biodegradable polymers because it can be degraded by microorganisms.


The biodegradation process in soil depends on the specific environment (climate, soil quality, population of microorganisms).

Food Regulatory Status

Biodolomer® T is one of the few compostable polymers, that complies in its composition with the European foodstuff legislation for food contact, EU Directive 10 / 2011 / EC with amendment 2023/1442, and US food contact notification for the main components:

FCN 2032, 1926, 615, and 623.


Specific limitations and more details are given on request. The converter or packer has to check the suitability of the article for the application.

Form supplied and Storage

Biodolomer® T is supplied as lenticular pellets in big bags. Temperatures during transportation and storage may not exceed 60 °C at any time. Storage time of unopened bags may not surpass 12 months at room temperature (23 °C).

Applications

Biodolomer® T has been developed for the conversion to extruded films from 0.3 - 8 mm thickness using a sheet extrusion process with subsequent thermoforming operation. Typical applications are packaging film for cups, trays, boards, and other thermoformed containers or articles. In view of numerous factors influencing the functionality and shelf life of Biodolomer® films and finished articles made thereof, the production parameters have to be tested by the converters before utilization.
