Arkema collaborates with Purac in development of a new line of block copolymers

September 13/2010

( -- Purac and Arkema announce their collaboration in functional Lactide-based block copolymers. These block copolymers will enhance the thermo-mechanical and physical properties of many biobased polymers like Poly Lactic Acid (PLA), resulting in a wider range of applications opportunities. These copolymers are produced by combining Arkemas organic catalysis ring-opening polymerisation technology with Puracs L- and D-Lactide monomers


The combined know-how of Purac and Arkema will allow the development of this new range of high purity functional block copolymers containing PLA segments. This new product improves the specific functional properties, such as thermal resistance and impact strength in various polymers. PLA is a strongly growing biobased thermoplastic polymer which is widely used in packaging, textile and other consumer goods.
