Bio-resins traditionally show poor mechanical properties at higher temperatures and often come under pressure from being food-source derived. The BiomeHT range offers unrivalled heat resistance whilst retaining impressive environmental credentials. The HT family of products consists of cellulose-based high temperature grades made from a GM-free, non-food derived source and offers a higher temperature stability whilst being 100% biodegradable and compostable.
The latest addition to the HT family is BiomeHTX: a fibre-reinforced grade, designed specifically to produce stiff and strong injection-moulded parts.
Our BiomeHT range offers a higher temperature stability whilst retaining outstanding environmental credentials. With excellent room temperature mechanical properties, BiomeHTC has a softening point of 70°C in both dry and aqueous conditions. It also offers greater transparency and is perfect for clearer products.
BiomeHT70 is suitable for applications where temperatures may reach 70°C, which may occur in the logistics chain. BiomeHT70 has a softening point of 90°C whilst still maintaining good flow characteristics.
BiomeHT80 is suitable for applications where temperatures may reach 80°C, for example electronic applications.
When temperature resistance is paramount, BiomeHT90 is the answer. With a softening point of 110°C, some 40–50°C higher than competitive bioplastics, BiomeHT90 is the perfect choice for food service and electronics applications.
BiomeHT90 - Injection
The perfect solution for high temperature resistant, injection moulded products.
BiomeHT90 - Extrusion
The right choice for high temperature resistant sheet extrusion and thermoforming applications. Proven to be stiffer than oil-based PS, allowing the convertor to down gauge without affecting mechanical properties or functionality.
The latest addition to the BiomeHT family. 100% bio-based, offering outstanding temperature performance (>130°C/>266°F) following a short post-moulding heat treatment.
Our biopolymers show unrivalled heat resistance.
VICAT (A) measures the temperature at which the surface of a test sample starts to soften significantly. Vicat-A Test method ISO306.
