Biobased additives for biopolymer-textiles
It is well-known that the properties of plastics are not inherent in the polymer itself, but that these are obtained through the use of functional additives. Nucleating agents, plasticizers, flame-retardants, colorants, anti-statics, stabilizers are all examples of additives that are indispensable in today’s materials. However, in many cases, biobased versions of these additives are unavailable. This makes it almost impossible to produce 100 % biobased products. To be able to do so, it is essential to develop biobased additives.
