Amitroplast is an important ingredient in your bioplastic compound.
With the AMITROPLAST product family, AGRANA provides a user-friendly thermoplastic starch for extrusion, film blowing, injection molding and 3D printing.
Our AMITROPLAST products allow users to incorporate significant amounts of thermoplastic starch and thus, to create tailor-made polymer compounds that are processable by using standard polymer equipment and capable of adding extra value to innovative products.

AMITROPLAST® has a bio-based carbon content of 100 % and allows you to reach easily 40 % and more in your products.
A 25 μm film, based on a compound that consists of 50 % AMITROPLAST® and 50 % PBAT (polybutylene adipate-co-terephthalate) results typically in an exten-sibility of approximately 350 % and a tensile strength of 25 MPa.
Stretching increases the tensile strength, whereby values in a range of 60 MPa are accomplished (depending on the applied draw-ratio).
- No smoke
The new technology of AMITROPLAST® significantly reduces the development of smoke during film blowing.
- Injection Molding & Thermoforming
AMITROPLAST® can be applied in injection molding and thermoforming processes.
- BIO-degradation & composting
AMITROPLAST® is home-compostable and improves the compostability of your extruded and injected products significantly.
AMITROPLAST® is bio-based, bio-degradable and can be disposed of in a home or industrial composting environment.
