BiologiQ NuPlasticQ® GP General Purpose BioPolymers
Categories: Polymer; Renewable/Recycled Polymer; Thermoplastic; Polylactic Acid (PLA) Biopolymer

Material Notes: Description: NuPlastiQ GP General Purpose BioPolymers are plant-based polysaccharide, low crystallinity, thermoplastic resins that offer exceptional functional and environmental benefits. They can be used alone, but are designed to be blended with legacy thermoplastics such as HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE, PP, ABS, TPE, and rHDPE*. Using NuPlastiQ GP resins helps reduce both fossil fuel-based plastic content and greenhouse gas generation.


  • NuPlastiQ GP is designed to be compounded with traditional fuel-based and plant-based plastics to produce three groups of polymers: NuPlastiQ XP High Performance BioPolymers for packaging; NuPlastiQ XD High Durability Polymers for durable goods; and NuPlastiQ BC Biodegradable/Compostable BioPolymers for packaging and films.
  • The strength of GP can allow for significantdowngauging, especially for thin film applications.
  • GP maintains the recyclability or compostability of the resin with which it is compounded.
  • Specific grades are ASTM D6400 and EN-13432 certified for compostability. All GP resins are USDA Certified Biobased Products.
  • GP resins are certified marine biodegradable and industrial compostable by OK TUV.
  • Thin films made with GP have a soft feel.
  • Can be used as a stand-alone polymer for certain low temperature, injection molding applications.
  • Supplied in pellet form.
