Stanelco Bioplast® GS 2189 Biodegradable Plastic
Categories: Polymer; Film; Renewable/Recycled Polymer; Thermoplastic

Material Notes: Bioplast 2189 is a product that is optimised for sheet extrusion, injection and compression moulding. It is always biodegradable and readily compostable in thin sections, this material is useable in existing moulds and equipment and can be coloured vividly.

Bioplast 2189 is a natural replacement for PVC, PP, HDPE and PET. It is a bio-compostable material made from over 60% sustainable crop material and 20% non oil-based products.

Made from corn starch mixed with other proprietary brand products for superior flexibility, Bioplast 2189 polymer is certified EN 13432 and DIN CERTCO biodegradable and compostable. Bioplast 2189 has EU & FDA (USA) Food Contact Approval.

Bioplast 2189 was developed for the packaging, consumer and industrial sectors. Applications include formed parts and film usage, i.e. trays, pouches, wrapping, parts, lids, cups and containers. The product is versatile and can be made into sheet for thermoforming, blown into thin sheet for film, or injection moulded into virtually any shape. Bioplast 2189 has the ability to ‘drop into’ most applications with little adjustment or affect on performance.
