Water-degradable / Biodegradable Plastic

What is NuPlon™ Resin?

NuPlon™ resin is a proprietary curable pre-polymer, patent pending, comprised of hydroxyl and acid units which, upon heating, react with one another forming a chemically crosslinked solid by releasing a water molecule. The reaction is reversible as adding water back to the reaction mixture breaks the bonds and chemically degrades the structure down into small, non-toxic components. Typical degradation time is 2-3 months of exposure to water under moderately warm temperatures (86 °F, or 30 °C).
