IC-I9621 is a biodegradable polymer that may use for injection molding producing heat-resistant articles, such as cutlery, trays, cups, baby toys, etc. After crystallization, IC-I9621 will have excellent heat resistance properties. IC-I9621 can blend with polylactic acid polymer (PLA). It will degrade in the compost environment producing: carbon dioxide, water and biomass. The variety of products made with IC-I9621 is growing every day. Applications include cutlery, cups, plates, cosmetics, and outdoor novelties.
IC-I9621 biopolymer injection molding applications can be processed on conventional injection molding equipment. The material is stable in the molten state, provided that the drying procedures are followed. Mold flow is highly dependent on melt temperature. It is recommended to balance screw speed, back pressure, and process temperature to control melt temperature. IC-I9621 needs to be process with low moisture content. It is recommended that the moisture level be less than 0.1%.
