Ever increasing attention to the environment has led companies to offer their customers products made with compostable material.
When assessing these materials, crucial elements to take into account are resistance to liquids, resistance to heat and how they can be adjusted to industrial applications.
To satisfy these requirements and with great emphasis on environmental protection, Cuki Professional has developed a new type of plastic based on polylactic acid (PLA) produced directly in the Pontinia (LT) production site, through a specific process of compounding the granule obtained from products of natural origin.
