PLA sheet black
PLA sheet is produced from a vegetable raw material, namely corn starch. The abbreviation stands for polylactic acid. PLA is biodegradable and biocompatible. This means that the boards are compostable under non-industrial conditions. It is an impact-resistant and machinable sheet with a hard surface. The plates can also be printed, so are suitable for, for example, p.o.s. applications. The plates have a fine grain structure on one side. This was deliberately chosen to make scratches and fingerprints less visible. The material also looks a lot like our Terranyl© sheets.
Applications of PLA sheet
In terms of properties, the PLA sheets are very similar to the plastic Polystyrene. This makes it extremely suitable as a replacement for this material. Some applications for PLA sheets are: POS equipment, signage, festivals and events. The sheets are therefore used often in the sign industry. In addition, it can be used for interior applications.
PLA sheets come in the colours white and black. The standard sizes are 1000x600mm and 1200x1000mm. Furthermore, the plates are available in 1mm to 3mm per colour and size. If you need a different size or colour, please contact us. Then we will see what we can do for you.
Work with PLA sheet
PLA sheets are very easy to process. The processing options include sawing, drilling, gluing and printing. In addition, the sheets can be mechanically connected and can be vacuum formed easily. All this makes the plate suitable for advertising material in shops.
The PLA sheets are a circular product. Sheets are made from the corn starch granulate at a lower temperature than standard plastic. This is better for CO2 emissions. The sheets are then used in, for example, a shop. The plates are then collected and recycled or composted. The compost can be used again to grow new corn. As icing on the cake, these sheets are also completely manufactured in the Netherlands, so this contributes to the reduction of CO2 emissions from transport.
