L&B plant-based Bioplastic look similar to petroleum based plastics, but are made from plants and are 100% compostable. The L&B product range includes items made from PLA and CPLA:
PLA is made from fermented corn starch. PLA products are transparent and heat sensitive to 40˚C. Our clear bioplastic products are made from PLA, for example, clear bags, deli containers, sandwich boxes and clear cold drink / smoothie cups and lids.
CPLA is a combination of PLA, chalk and other biodegradable additives and can withstand temperatures of up to 95°C without deforming. It is opaque in colour. Our cutlery and coffee cup lids are made from CPLA and our coffee cups are lined with CPLA to prevent them from absorbing liquids.
