MELT STRENGTH ENHANCER
Poly-lactic acid inherently has extremely low melt strength. This is the reason it is difficult to down-gauge PLA sheets during extrusion as well as thermoforming.
TapBio Compostable MSE MB offers improvement in melt strength of PLA at very low dosages. This helps in widening the processing temperature window. It also helps avoid sag between the die and downstream roll.
Using TapBio melt strength enhancer (MSE) also compensates for the loss in melt strength occurring due to heavy loading of PLA regrind or due to insufficient pre-drying.
