NEW YORK, NY, July 14, 2014 – The USDA has approved BYLOX® Concentrated Additive from Genarex™ as a USDA Certified Biobased Product. USDA test results indicate that BYLOX has a biobased content of at least 98%.
“BYLOX is a game-changer. We’ve combined the latest in processing technology and material science to create a new, affordable threshold of performance that gives companies a cost-effective, profitable way to tap into the rapidly growing consumer demand for affordable ‘green’ products,” says Genarex VP of Sales and Product Development Bob Montgomery. He adds “The USDA certification gives BYLOX critically important credibility in a marketplace that’s grown wary of ‘green’ claims that turn out to be false.”
BYLOX offers significant performance and processability advantages other bioadditives don’t, including selective processing temperature design, a thermal processing window that can reach 250°C, compatibility with an unprecedented number of polymers, and an ability to increase finished-product ductility.
In most cases, BYLOX can be added up to 10-30% without sacrificing material performance and properties. Genarex offers BYLOX materials at no charge for capability sampling in specific market applications and products, as well as product evaluations, cost-out, and cost/benefit models. “We’re working very closely with our customers to ensure smooth adoption and integration with their existing and tooling processes,” says Montgomery.
