PLA compounds with various impact modifiers were tested and improvements in Charpy impact strength up to factors of ten were achieved with new Core-Shell type modifiers opening the non-break area for PLA. Reinforcements with flax fibres increased tensile properties and dimensional stability on costs of toughness.
