Properties of high impact modified PLA and PLA -flax compounds

R. Forstner, W. Stadlbauer

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingsConference contributionpeer-review


PLA compounds with various impact modifier classes were tested and improvements in charpy impact strength up to factors of 10 were achieved with new Core-Shell type modifiers opening the non break area for PLA. Reinforcements with flax fibers increased tensile properties and dimensional stability on costs of toughness.
