VINNEX® 8880 is recommended for transparent films and injection molding applications. It is a flexible polymer with a low melt viscosity in thermoplastic processing. It shows excellent compatibility with Biopolyesters like PLA. The melt viscosity and the metallic noise of the PLA film will be significantly reduced. In combination with PLA the processing temperature needs to be lowered. The typical level of VINNEX 8880 for modifying PLA is in the range of 5 to 40 %.
