Bioplastics like polylactic acid (PLA), polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA), polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) and starch-based resins like Novamont’s Mater-Bi can be more colorful, thanks to new masterbatch choices from Clariant.
Options can include natural colors drawn from renewable sources like plants, or conventional, man-made ingredients in a compatible carrier produced in compliance with standards governing compostability and ecotoxicity.
Formulations are available for food-contact applications and many carry “OK compost” certification and comply with widely recognized standards for heavy-metal content and plant-toxicity.
More economical and more process- and light-stable than all-natural products, they represent a convenient alternative.
