eSUN biodegradable polycaprolactone obtain EUR DIN certification
eSUN is one of the earliest companies involved in the biodegradable metrial industry in China. With nearly 20 years of R&D and production exprience, it has led or participated in the drafting of more than 10 industry standards and national standards, and applied for more than 60 patents. It has obtained more than 40 items, covering the synthesis, modification, application and recycling of biodegradable materials.
Polycaprolactone (PCL) is white particles, non-toxic, insoluble in water, and easily soluble in a variety of polar organic solvents. PCL has good biocompatibility and is compatible with many conventional plastics, as well as good biodegradability, it can be completely degraded into water and CO2. In addition, PCL also has good shape memory temperature control properties, and is widely used in the production and processing of drug carriers, plasticizers, degradable plastics, nanofiber spinning, shaping materials, toys, etc.
eSUN has the world's only PCL industrial continuous polymerization capability. PCL has two major directions for biomedical and biodegradable packaging applications. Biomedical applications include low-temperature radiotherapy fixation plates and bone fixation low-temperature thermoplastic plates, and biodegradable packaging applications are becoming more and more widely used with the global ban on plastics.
The "Polycaprolactone (PCL)" national standard (GBT376 42-2019) drafted by eSUN was officially promulgated and implemented on January 1, 2020. The company plans to further increase the production capacity of polycaprolactone by 6000 tons per year. It will be put into production in 2021 to meet the growing needs of the biodegradable and biomedical market.
Congratulations to the company's biodegradable material polycaprolactone (PCL) for successfully obtaining the European DIN certification, which was issued by the certification center of the German Institute for Standardization (DIN CERTCO), an authoritative European biodegradable plastic certification body, and fully proved our polycaprolactone series products are widely recognized by European countries.
In addition, another international authoritative biodegradation certification for the company's polycaprolactone (PCL) products, the BPI US certification is also being processed, and the biodegradation certification issued by this authority will soon be obtained.
With the biodegradation industry developing, eSUN will be with you all the way!
