Our 100% biodegradable product line consists of PLA, PBS, PBAT, TPS and blends of these polymers reinforced with natural fillers. Materials are given various mechanical, thermal and visual properties, using a range of bio-fillers such as natural fibres, agricultural and consumer food waste.

These materials require specialist compounding due to their low thermal stability and are pre-treated before compounding. Thanks to its know-how in engineering plastics formulation and processing, 4PLAS LTD offers customized sustainable bioplastics by producing materials that allow for a wider range of use and deliver better performance to meet challenging technical requirements
