Wittenburg is now happy to announce the launch of its bioplastic range named CAWITON® BIO. Bioplastics are a diverse range of polymer molecules each having a unique set of characteristics. The properties of bioplastics can range from non-biodegradable as most conventional plastics to completely biodegradable. Some bioplastics are based on fossil resources like oil but more and more bioplastics are based on renewable resources like plants or bacteria.
Traditionally Wittenburg is a compounder of conventional plastics for medical devices, pharmaceutical packaging, food packaging and drink water contact applications. Clean manufacturing under GMP standards and a medical (ISO 13485) quality system do assure that the final compounds do comply with the most stringent regulations.
Wittenburg is now happy to announce the launch of its bioplastic range. Currently the following products are available:
- Cawiton® Bio 1000 series – Our (high purity) Thermoplastic Starch (TPS) products
- Cawiton® Bio 2000 series – Our high quality Biopolymer blends
- Cawiton® Bio 3000 series – Our Biodegradable product line for flexible food packaging and 3D applications
- Cawiton® Bio 4000 series – Our broad plastics portfolio with Bio-fillers for TPE-S .
Wittenburg has the ambition to extend its product offering for the above markets with compounded bioplastic solutions. Investments are available to extend the production capabilities upon customer requests. Furthermore, Wittenburg will develop compounds based on bio-plastics for drug release or Active Pharmaceutical Ingredients (APIs) applications. These bio-plastics compounds will be used for to assist in the repair of tissues or to replace non functional tissue and have to meet the most stringent regulations. Partners interested in the development of bioplastic compounds solutions are invited to contact Wittenburg for a first discussion. Wittenburg has resources available to start long term innovate development programs.
