What is PLA injection molding
PLA(Polylactic Acid) is a naturally occurring plastic made of corn starch that is high in hygroscopicity and easy to absorb water from the air. PLA is an ideal material for use in thermoplastic injection molding, extrusion, films, 3D printing, and almost any process associated with the manufacture of thermoplastic components due to its ability to naturally breakdown and regenerate. Different industries can use PLA plastics to make PLA molded parts for many different applications.
Injection molding of PLA offers several benefits
– Degradable by microorganisms, minimal environmental impact after use
– Excellent mechanical and physico-chemical properties
– Easily processed, useful and suitable for blow molding, melt processing, and a variety of other processes
– Compatible and degradable
– Glamorous and transparent
– Superior tensile and ductile strength
– Permeance to air and oxygen
Application of PLA injection molding
PLA molding service includes such products as
- food packaging,
- fast food lunch boxes,
- nonwoven fabrics,
- industrial fabrics,
- healthcare fabrics,
- sanitary products,
- outdoor UV resistant fabrics,
- tent cloths,
- floor mats, etc.
In the field of medical, China PLA mouldings are also widely used for devices such as disposable infusion equipment, detachable surgical sutures, and slow-release packaging agents for drugs.
PLA is synthesized from starches, sugars, and other biomass materials when they are chemically converted and polymerized with lactic acid. PLA derived from bio-resources can be thermoplastically processed into highly transparent products to replace conventional disposable products and mitigate the shortage of petroleum.
Plastics made from PLA are the first commodity polymers made from renewable resources annually. By the United State Food and Drug Administration ,it is a generally recognized as safe (GRAS) material that is safe for all food packaging applications. In addition to being nontoxic, nonirritating, high strength, and easy to process and mold, PLA is also biocompatible. PLA melts at 160-180 degrees and can withstand temperatures up to 150 degrees. Injection molding, foaming, and blow molding can all be done with PLA, but its toughness is not sufficient. PLA has the best mechanical properties and thermostability of any polymer.
