Metabolix Presents Data Showing Mirel® Performance Additives Deliver Key Performance Improvements at Vinyltec 2014 and ADDCOM 

Metabolix, Inc. presented data on Mirel® performance additives at conferences held in the U.S. and Europe in October 2014. The presentations highlight data showing that Metabolix’s biobased PHA copolymers deliver key performance improvements in polyvinyl chloride (PVC) and polylactic acid (PLA) compounds for a variety of industrial and consumer applications. At Vinyltec, the data presented shows that PVC modified by our easy to process, biobased PHA additives exhibits performance comparable to incumbent high molecular weight ethylene copolymer resins. At ADDCOM, we presented data showing that at low loading levels our PHA materials can significantly improve the physical properties and versatility of PLA which has the potential to broaden the application range for PLA.
