Heavy CPLA cutlery is made from renewable CPLA or modified corn-based plastic materials. CPLA may also be referred to as crystallized PLA and offers more heat resistance than PLA. Designed for high heat applications, they can withstand temperatures up to 194˚F. These forks meet ASTM D6400 and/or D6868 for compostability and will break down in 60 days in an industrial composting facility. Wrapped cutlery helps keep cutlery sanitary prior to use, and can be included in takeout packaging so customers have everything they need to enjoy meals on-the-go. To ensure the whole package is completely eco-friendly, the PBAT film used to wrap cutlery is also compostable.
What is CPLA:
CPLA/PLA products are made from polylactic acid (PLA) which is made from corn starch. This material is a great alternative to harmful plastic and does not include petroleum which is found in most plastic products. Non toxic and renewable, this material is a great eco-friendly substitute to plastic. Learn more
What are Renewable Resources:
Renewable resources are those that are naturally replaced by the environment over time. The use of these resources puts less stress on the environment. Learn more
What is PBAT:
PBAT stands for Polybutylene adipate-co-terephthalate which is an alternative polymer. PBAT film is used to wrap cutlery kits and individual products and is completely compostable.
What is ASTM:
ASTM is the American Society for Testing and Materials. ASTM D6400 refers to the Standard Specification for Labeling of Plastics Designed to be Aerobically Composted in Municipal or Industrial Facilities. Learn more. ASTM D6868 refers to the Standard Specification for Labeling of End Items that Incorporate Plastics and Polymers as Coatings or Additives with Paper and Other Substrates Designed to be Aerobically Composted in Municipal or Industrial Facilities.
