MODULAR BUILDING SYSTEM
Wide range of possibilities with a few FlourPlast building blocks
Solanyl® is a group of products consisting of a smart series of biobased and biodegradable end compounds, suitable for direct conversion by the various known techniques. The name Solanyl is derived from the Latin words Solanum Tuberosum, which means potato. Solanyl® is based on reclaimed side stream starch from the potato processing industry and/or grain, root or seed flour based resources. The Solanyl® portfolio is special tailored for various converting methods and is a renewable alternative for various petroleum-based plastic applications, e.g. PS, PP, PE and PVC. The compounds can be used directly for the production of bioplastic products with most common converting methods with respect to injection molding, sheet and profile extrusion, thermoforming and extrusion film casting or blowing products and processes. Solanyl® products have a “natural” look and feel.
The current commercial grades of the Solanyl family are offered as follows:
FlourPlast is a modular, pre-compound building block system. Convert these ready-made granulates into thermoplastic compounds and increase the natural carbon or biobased (plant) content of your end product
The main standard portfolio of the Optinyl® grades contains masterbatches with properties like traditional masterbatches but dedicated for the compounders plastic market. Various Optinyl® products are available to be able for compounders to anticipate on various themes. Dedicated types or specialty grades can be made available as well. New grades our continuously developed, such as grades with higher flexibility, higher biobased content, different base polymers as well as lower costs varieties. Our technical services department is available to discuss your requirements.
Compatibilising additive polymer masterbatches (Optinyl® COP types) are especially designed for blending for the compounding industry to obtain:
