Cardia Bioplastics appoints Plastribution as distributor for the UK
Depending on their specific product and sustainability needs, Plastribution customers can now choose from Cardia Biohybrid resins or Cardia certified compostable resins. The Cardia materials can be converted on standard processing equipment without the need for additional investment. Cardia Biohybrid resins and Cardia compostable resins are suitable for a whole range of injection moulding, blow moulding, extrusion, film and coating applications..

Cardia Biohybrid resins are a blend of renewable materials and traditional polyolefins. The colourable and printable materials have a wide processing and application window and can be used to increase the renewable content of the final product by up to 50 percent. Typical applications include shrink wrappings, multi- layer films, moulding and high resolution printable packaging..

Cardia Compostable resins are biodegradable materials derived from renewable resources that meet international standards for compostability such as USA ASTM 6400 and Europe’s EN13432:2000. The compostable resins are soft touch, colourable and printable, and can also be developed as compounds to specific customer requirements. Typical applications include compostable bags, moulded parts, extrusion coatings, laminates and films..

According to Plastribution managing director Mike Boswell, the Cardia bioplastics range will provide environmentally responsible polymer choices for its customers. “As the ‘sustainable products space’ grows, we have looked for a supplier with a full range of sustainable options. The Cardia Bioplastics range provides customers with that choice and is well proven with leading brand owners and plastics processing companies,” he said..

Commenting on the distribution agreement with Plastribution, Dr Frank Glatz, managing director of Cardia Bioplastics, said: “We are delighted to have this partnership with Plastribution, the leading plastics resins distributor in the UK market. Growth for the sustainable resins market is driven by changing public attitudes and regulatory requirements. Moreover, packaging and plastics businesses know that packaging and plastic products solutions based on sustainable resources will help them retain their future competitiveness.”
