Extending biodegradability to styrofoam.
New York is an example of a region that started banning styrofoams for its poor recycling efficiency. For this reason, we are attempting to manufacture styrofoam out of the high functionality PLA. Conventional PLA styrofoam had very low expansion ratio, hence making the material stiff and not heat resistant.
However, we are working on developing a PLA styrofoam with better quality and practical applicability with our technology. Biodegradable PLA styrofoam products have a prospect of replacing the conventional styrofoam packaging.

Piezoelectric Device
Under Development

The organic piezoelectric polymer film is expected to be used in a range of devices such as curved surface capacitive touch panels. PLA’s characteristic was its piezoelectricity and was therefore not normal to have pyroelectricity. However, with our additive, it is possible to develop a piezoelectric polymer film that has all the characteristics of pyroelectricity, transparency, flexibility, and safety.

透明性・柔軟性に優れている圧電性有機フィルムは曲面タッチパネルなど様々な応用が期待されます。ポリ乳酸に圧電性を持たせるために結晶化すると白濁するのが一般的でしたが、当社添加剤により、圧電性、透明性、柔軟性、安全性が全て満たされた圧電性有機フィルムが実現します。
