As we commonly know that plastic is a big environmental menace, however there is the better alternative to keep our earth away from plastic planet. This friendly alternative is “bioplastic” which is made from sustainable source and naturally decays faster than traditional plastics. However, it is not very popular to produce in plastic manufacturer because bioplastic material is expensive and not comparable with conventional plastic. Therefore starch plastic which is a thermoplastic starch derived from nature, is the best selected solution.
SMS has developed our thermoplastic starch, TAPIOPLAST by chemically modified starch structure to have Thermoplastic characteristic and more compatibility with plastic resin. Our TAPIOPLAST at specific percentage along with PBAT and PLA can be processed by conventional blown film extrusion to make bio shopping bag and bio-mulch film product that control degradable rate, be completely biodegraded faster and have competitive cost.
