Metabolix to Present New Findings on Multifunctional Benefits of PHA Biopolymers in PVC Applications at Vinyltec 2015

At Vinlytec 2015, Metabolix, Inc. will present its latest findings on the multifunctional benefits of bio-based PHA copolymers in a range of applications for polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and wood polymer composites. In its research, Metabolix has shown that its polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHA) biopolymers – highly miscible in PVC – can be used as processing aids to increase ease of processing. The use of PHA also allows the increased use of mineral fillers, wood flour or PVC recyclate with improved properties of the final parts. All of these performance and processing advantages can deliver significant cost improvements. Mansoor Akhthar, Metabolix’s application development manager, will review these new findings during a technical presentation.
