- Performance Additives: Metabolix has developed a line of PHA biopolymer performance additives for traditional and biobased plastics, including PVC (polyvinyl chloride) and PLA (polylactic acid). In packaging applications, Metabolix's performance additives can be used as property modifiers to impart a range of physical and performance properties in PVC and PLA.
- Color Masterbatches: Metabolix biopolymer color masterbatches are highly compatible with a wide range of biopolymers, and can preserve high bio-content and certifiable compostability for broad end-of-life options, including soil and marine degradability and suitability for home compost. Metabolix will display its color masterbatches based on PHA in cooperation with AF-Color.
- Metabolix Developmental Grades in Film and PHA Latex Coatings: Metabolix will be featuring developmental film grades that enable creation of film products with a range of properties and capabilities. For example, Metabolix will display films that can range from flexible to stiff while maintaining high load carrying capabilities. Metabolix's PHA biopolymers also provide the benefit of biocontent, toughening, and flexibilization to film compounds used in packaging applications.
- Metabolix also is developing PHA latex coatings for packaging applications. These PHA latex coatings are expected to offer good barrier properties and tough, tack-free performance. Metabolix's PHA patex coatings are biodegradable in marine and soil environments, as well as by anerobic digestion, while maintaining compatibility with repulping, the most common recycling method used for paper and cardboard.
