‘Infrared heat helps thermoforming bioplastics’ - .PDF file.

Plantic Technologies has developed and patented a bioplastic made of vegetable starch from non-genetically engineered maize. This corn starch is used to manufacture trays, blisters and sorting inserts in chocolate packaging. To do this, the foil must be heated and thermoformed. Working with Heraeus Noblelight, Plantic found short-wave emitters to be particularly suitable for optimising the heating process.
