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.
