About this product
- DescriptionPolymers are used in practically every facet of daily life. Most polymers come from fossil fuels and are not biodegradable, causing long-term environmental hazards. Biodegradable polymers provide an alternative, environmentally friendly class of materials. Composites of such polymers have high potential within a wide spectrum of applications.
