film grade (for food packing) and high-performance grades (PS, PP and ABS replacement).
Poly(lactic acid) is mainly used as packaging; textiles; nonwovens; electronics; automotive parts; medicine; and cutlery. Packaging is the largest application market nowadays, and it is believed that its application will keep increasing with the development of new heat resistant poly(lactic acid) blends.

Polylactic Acid (a.k.a. PLA, Polylactide) is a thermoplastic aliphatic polyester. It is different than most thermoplastic in that it is a bioplastic, which means it is derived from a number of renewed biomass like starch and sugar cane via bacterial lactic fermentation. It is semi crystalline or amorphous, rigid, resilient and ultraviolet light resistant material, with similar characteristics to common petrochemical industry plastics such as polyethylene, polypropylene and polystyrene. Polylactic acid is used in plastic films, bottles and biodegradable medical devices. It figures among the most consumed bioplastics worldwide.
