Abstract
Polylactic acid (PLA) is a biodegradable thermoplastic polymer that is presented as a good alternative to petroleum-derived plastics. Some of the major drawbacks of this material are its lack of thermal stability and rapid degradation in large-scale production; thus, special care must be taken during processing. To improve their properties, a reactive extrusion with a multi-epoxy chain extender (SAmfE) has been performed at pilot plant scale. The induced topological modifications produce a mixtu...
