Biobased, food contact approved and heat resistant if required.
Luminy® PLA has a perfect fit with rigid food packaging due to its excellent gloss, transparency and printability. The rigidity and good flavor and aroma barrier of PLA complement the properties required for rigid food packaging. It can be processed on most existing production lines requiring little to no modifications, including fill-form-seal production lines. PLA is approved for food contact use in most regions and is certified compostable. Depending on the application, multiple end-of-life options can be used: composting in case the packaging contains a lot of organic waste (e.g. coffee capsules) or recycling in case the packaging is relatively clean (e.g. bottles).
