Resumen:
Una empresa francesa especializada en investigación y desarrollo en el campo de bioplásticos ofrece experiencia en modificación y mejora de las propiedades de bioplásticos. La empresa ofrece asistencia al cliente en todas las fases de desarrollo (búsqueda de socios y financiación, diseño de especificaciones, certificaciones, etc.) y dispone de un laboratorio de caracterización para determinar las principales propiedades mecánicas y térmicas de materiales bioplásticos. Se buscan compañías interesadas en modificar los materiales que utilizan o venden por otros materiales más ecológicos (bioplásticos). El objetivo es establecer acuerdos de cooperación técnica.

Details

Tittle:
French company in formulation of bioplastic solutions seeks technical cooperation agreements.
Summary:
A French company involved in research and development in the field of bioplastics has developed an expertise dedicated to modification and improvement of bioplastics properties. The company is looking for technical cooperation with some companies interested in changing materials they use or they sell by more environmentally friendly materials as bioplastics.
Description:
A French company involved in research and development in the field of bioplastics has developed an expertise to assist others companies in the development of bioplastic solutions. It is specialized in accompanying plastic converters or outsourcers who want to develop and integrate products or packaging into bioplastics

Expertise consists of furniture of services for the development of materials tailored to meet specifications and for the characterization of bioplastics. In addition to these services, the company assist the client in all stages of its development (searching for partners and fundings, drafting the specification, certification,...etc).

The company is in contact with current producers of PLA, PHA, biopolyesters ... and future biopolymers. Its main references are stored in France, with each of them a few tons, which allows the SME to be reactive when testing. Most of its references have European certificates of composting, food contact and the REACH directive.

Based on significant experience and a partner expertise of a national and international network the company develops materials fulfilling the desired specifications by plastic processing (compounding, injection moulding) and characterization machines.

The company has a characterization laboratory capable of determining the main mechanical and thermal properties of bioplastic materials.

The centre may, for example, provide the partner with a complete data sheet on any bioplastic material or even characterize the performance achieved through the incorporation of fillers or natural fibers.

The work of the centre:

Optimization of the mechanical properties of bioplastics:
- Softening of materials, increased shock resistance.
- Increased stiffness.

Improved thermal properties (negative cold, high temperature> 100 ° C).

Incorporation of plant fibers (wood, bamboo, hemp, miscanthus ...).

Modification/control of the speed of biodegradable plastics degradation (acceleration or reducing the rate of degradation).

Formulation development from co-products industry (mainly food).

Development of formulations substitution of fossil-based plastics like PVC / ABS / PS shock ...

Adaptation of existing bioplastics market for producers materials (type PHA ...).

The company is looking for technical cooperation with some companies interested in changing materials they use or they sell by more environmentally friendly materials as bioplastics. Companies could be in sectors of plastic processing, packaging, consumer products, transportation, construction...or bioplastics producers (compounders).

The current and potential domains of application are plastic processing, packaging, consumer products and bioplastics producers.
Advantages and Innovations:
Processes and methodologies are based both on formulation know-how and access to different raw materials and additives. The main advantage of the offer of the company consists of a portfolio including several hundreds of references.

The purpose of this center is to change / improve the properties of bioplastics based on a functional specifications to provide the desired properties to the material and allow to maintain current production tooling.

The center supports innovation projects in all sectors: packaging (food, cosmetics ...), horticulture / agriculture, automotive, building, toys, ... etc.

Building on its strong network of partners, the company is also able to perform all further analysis desired.

Just for information, the company is currently working on some materials testing for 3D printers because users are fond of textures and colors. If this hybrid plastics production business grows, the company might approach a partner to develop this project.
