The product has a renewable content exceeding 80% and is fully compostable - enabling adhesives manufacturers to meet the growing demand for more sustainable products and addressing growing food safety concerns related to food packaging.

Available in the fourth quarter 2015

The lactide ("Puralact B3”) caprolactone co-polymer ("Capa”) has been developed by Corbion and Perstorp. It is expected to be commercially available in the fourth quarter 2015. "This material represents the culmination of two years' joint development work with Perstorp. It will create a technology platform for the development of polymers which provide an alternative to traditional technologies for the adhesive industry. It also brings potential for CASE (coatings, adhesives, sealants and elastomers) markets in general" said Marco Bootz, Corbion's Senior Vice President Biochemicals.

"Through this partnership, we supply adhesives manufacturers with a competitive advantage by providing safe technologies that deliver high performance with a reduced environmental footprint," said Håkan Björnberg, Vice President Innovation at Perstorp. The new material is expected to be the first in a series of innovations for the adhesive industry resulting from this partnership.
