Environmentally friendly

Polylactide, polylactic acid (PLA), is extruded into film, also known as polylactic acid film or PLA film. PLA flexible film is made from corn, wheat, cassava and other starch-containing organisms as starting materials, enzymatically digested to obtain glucose, then fermented by acid bacteria to lactic acid, and finally compounded to obtain a biodegradable thermoplastic polyester. PLA has good biocompatibility, environmental safety, non-toxic, good mechanical properties, light transmission and processing properties. It can be used in various packaging materials such as floor film, food packaging bags and pharmaceuticals.
