Bioplastic PHA puts new muscle in flexible PVC compounds

Wednesday, June 12th, 2013 | Permalink

New research from Metabolix is putting an interesting twist on the fitness-of-PVC-for-medical applications debate. Naturally produced plastics called polyhydroxyalkanoates (PHAs) can be used as a modifier to significantly improve the physical properties of a PVC compound while simultaneously reducing the amount of phthalate plasticizers needed to make the material flexible for applications such as bags and tubing.
