Is PBS a polymer

PBS is a biodegradable polymer. In the field of polymer materials, PBS is a biodegradable new environmental protection material, is a chemical synthesis of biodegradable material, the full name is Poly (butylene succinate). It belongs to the same class of materials are polyvinyl alcohol (PVA), polycaprolactone (PCL) and so on. It can be used to make degradable plastic products, including: compost bags, garbage bags, shopping bags, electronic packaging bags, mulch, catering utensils, golf tees, foam materials, etc.

From the point of view of physical properties, that will be shown in detail in the next paragraph, PBS is a white crystalline thermoplastic polymer with a density of 1.25 g/cm3, a melting point (Tm) in the range of 90–120 °C, and a low glass transition temperature (Tg) of about −45 to −10 °C.

PBS entered the field of material research in the 1990s, and quickly became one of the research hotspots of general-purpose biodegradable plastics that can be widely promoted and applied. It has good heat resistance, and the thermal deformation temperature and product use temperature can exceed 100℃. Its synthetic raw material source can be either petroleum resources, or can be obtained by fermentation of biological resources, PBS is the leader in biodegradable plastic materials.

Polybutylene succinate (PBS) is a polymer with good biodegradable properties. Compared with polylactic acid, polyhydroxyalkanoate, polycaprolactone and other biodegradable plastics, PBS has relatively low price, excellent mechanical properties, good heat resistance, and hot deformation temperature close to 100℃, which is the focus of biodegradable plastics research and development at home and abroad.

PBS is a material biodegradable polymer, which can be degraded into substances such as h2o and co2 under the action of bacteria or enzymes, and is harmless to the environment. PBS has a good melting point and high performance, which can replace general polyethylene or polypropylene and enter the field of general plastics, completely solving the pollution caused by traditional plastics to the environment. At the same time, PBS is non-toxic and harmless, and has good biocompatibility, so it also has good application prospects in the fields of medical materials and drug carriers. Due to the complete degradability of PBS, it is a general trend to replace other materials that pollute the environment as “Environmentally Friendly Materials“. PBS series polyester has good biocompatibility and bioabsorbability, is environmentally friendly, is a cure for the traditional plastic produced by the “white pollution”, is the green plastic of tomorrow.

Our company produces all biodegradable plastic raw materials polybutylene succinate (PBS), our PBS has passed the European Union international certification and the United States BPI certification. There are three main varieties: injection grade, blister grade and blow grade. The processing property is good, the processing equipment is simple, and it can be blended with all kinds of fully degradable materials. The raw material of PBS can be either traditional energy or biomass, which is rich in sources and has a very broad application prospect. If you have any questions, leave me a message.
