ENMAT Y1000P PHBV polymer is a thermoplastic resin that can be used in injection molding, thermoforming and extrusion. PHBV is made by bacterial fermentation and is 100% biobased and 100% biodegradable. This material is heat-resistant up to 160ºC. PHBV can be blended with other biopolymers such as PLA
based polymers or synthetic biobased polyesters. It contains a nucleating agent to induce crystallinity. Blending with PHBV leads to a better flexibility and improved temperature resistance. PHBV is also available as a powder (Product code: Enmat Y1000). This grade does not contain any additives.
