TerraTek® Starch Composites (SC)

Supplier: Green Dot


TerraTek® Starch Composites (SC) are proprietary blends of different ratios of wheat starch and polypropylene for injection molding applications available from Greendot Bioplastics.

For example, TerraTek SC 65 contains 65% wheat starch by weight, and SC 50 contains 50% wheat starch along with a balance of injection-grade polypropylene. However, a range of properties can be achieved by altering the starch-to-plastic ratio and by the inclusion or admission of other additives.

Example Applications:

  • Tableware
  • Films
  • Toys
  • Injection-molded and profile extrusion parts
