FKuR expands Biograde® portfolio with two new injection molding grades: The bioplastics specialist FKuR Kunststoff GmbH, based in Willich, Germany, has extended its product range of cellulose acetate based injection molding grades. In addition to the current Biograde® standard grade C9550, the portfolio now also includes the new grades C 5509 CL and C 5508, which are both based on a newly developed combination of raw materials and additives. Their ASTM D 6866 bio-based content has been increased from 50% to over 65%. The cellulose used for Biograde® originates from sustainable forestry wood, tropical wood is not used. Both grades can be easily processed with short cycle times on standard injection molding machines with universal screws, even in multi-cavity molds.
