Facts about CORN Resin
» The Corn Resin used for all KelseyPromo Corn Plastic Products is made by a company called NatureWorks and the resin is referred to as PLA (Polymerized Lactic Acid). NatureWorks PLA is made by isolating the starch stored in the corn kernels and converting it into sugars. During a process of fermentation and separation the sugars become lactic acid, which is used to create the plastic called polylactide.
» Corn Resin requires about 20% to 30% less energy to produce and contributes only half the carbon dioxide than plastics made from petrochemicals.
» PLA resin is FDA approved and suitable for food contact. It is widely used for dairy, juice and water bottles, as well as trays for deli meats, salads and single-serve meals.
» Products made of a strong base chemical may not be suited for containers made from PLA.
» PLA Corn Plastic containers can be frozen and thawed successfully, and can withstand heat up to 120 degrees.
» PLA is compostable and biodegradable in industrial composting conditions, but it will not degrade or disintegrate on shelves. In order to degrade, PLA must be exposed to temperatures greater than 140 degrees F and relative humidity greater than 90% for approximately 60 to 90 days.
» Products made from PLA Corn Plastic are not dishwasher safe.
