Cerestech Inc. has introduced resin and starch blends that deliver high property retention with a reduced carbon footprint.
Cerestech of Montreal said its Cereloy is based on unique technology from the Ãcole Polytechnique of Montreal, the University of Montreal's Engineering School.
Cereloy uses starches from corn, wheat and tapioca and is suited to film, bags and injection molding products. Products have incorporated as much as 30 percent of thermoplastic and starch blends while maintaining properties, according to the company.
The first commercial product based on Cereloy is a blend of linear low density polyethylene and Cereloy to make can liners. Several other Cereloy grades for film and injection molding also are being launched.
