The product portfolio of Sirmax Group is increasingly “green”. In the sustainable development context towards which the company has been focusing since some years ago, the range of bio-compound products, with the brand Biocomp® produced by the Company Group Microtec srl, based in Mellaredo di Pianiga (Ve), is expanding. The bioplastics portfolio has been enriched by 4 new grades – which add to the already existent ones – specifically developed for injection molding and extrusion/thermoforming: Biocomp® IM 95, Biocomp® IM 95CP, Biocomp® IM DPLA and Biocomp® IM CFLEX.
The new grades are based on the formulation of innovative plant materials with the inclusion of natural additives which ensure a content of renewable “biobased” sources up to 100% (referencing to ASTM D 6866).
“For Microtec these new products represent the entrance into a new field, the one of injection moulding – explains Diego Lombardo, Microtec managing director -. Now we are able to source our customers with the compound specific to thermoforming, too. We are already operative”.
