What is the PLA/PLA Sheet ?
- PET sheet (polyethylene terephthalate) is a common thermoplastic that provides high dimensional stability, excellent mechanical strength and good resistance to creep. It offers resistance to chemicals, provides very low moisture absorption and is a good electrical insulator. The PET Sheets application contains general packaging applications, dairy items, and thermoforming food packaging applications, light panels, urban development and public buildings, street furniture, signs, advertising, and information, and sanitaryware.
- PLA is a lactic acid made from corn residue. It is biodegradable and biocompatible. This means that the boards are compostable under non-industrial conditions. It is an impact-resistant and machinable sheet with a hard surface. The PLA sheet can be used in rigid package of fruits, vegetables, eggs, cooked food and roast food, also can be usedfor packaging of sandwich, biscuit and some other packages like fresh flower.
|Sheet||Product Features||Applications||Kailida Extrusion Advantages|
|PET Sheet||Rigid, high transparency and glossiness.||Packaging||Extrusion equipped with special degassing system, so the crystallization-free and drying-free exhaust for PET sheet.|
|Stable performance, not influenced by humidity.|
|Good conduction properties.||Folding box||High torque, low speed, low energy consumption and high efficiency.|
|Superior impact resistance.|
|High light transmittance||Vacuum therm-forming||Twin screw extruder generates less frictional heat during extrusion of molten resin.|
|Superior processing property|
|Waterproof, good weather resistance, corrosion resistance.||Blister Pack||The resin melted in the barrel of the twin screw extruder undergoes smooth and balanced twin screw meshing and shearing, so that the raw materials are mixed and melted, and the quality is better.|
|Eco-friendly; odorless, tasteless, Non-toxic; Non pollution, easy to be recycled.|
|PLA Sheet||100% biodegradable and compostable||Used for packaging industry like cups, bowls, bottles and straws||The twin screw extruder rotates in mesh, and the finished product in the barrel can be cleaned automatically.|
|Suitable oxygen barrier properties.|
Poor water vapour barrier properties.
|Used for flowers and gift packaging||The melting time of the raw material in the barrel is shorter (that is the residence time of the raw material in the barrel is shorter than that of a single screw extruder), and the productivity is higher than that of single screw extruder.|
|Easy thermoforming characteristics.|
|High transparency and gloss.||Used for biomedical and pharmaceutical applications such as drug delivery systems.||The whole production line is operated by PLC touch screen, high digital system, easier debugging and more convenient maintenance.|
