What is a Biodegradable Phone Case?

Biodegradable phone case means that the material of the phone case can be degraded and is a degradable material.

The phone protective case degradable material has excellent mechanical processing and biodegradation properties, and is competent with most synthetic plastics. After being discarded, it can be completely degraded and decomposed into carbon dioxide and water, which will not pollute the environment and can replace some petroleum-based products. Catering to the requirements of developing a circular economy and realizing sustainable development in the 21st century, it has been recognized by the industry as a new "ecological material" with development prospects in the new century.

Main types of degradable materials:

  1. Polylactic acid (PLA): PLA has the characteristics of non-toxic and non-irritating, good biocompatibility, high strength, good processability, and biodegradability. After secondary processing such as silk, it is widely used in packaging, textile and medical fields, and its waste can be decomposed into water and carbon dioxide by microorganisms.
  2. Polyhydroxyalkanoate (PHA): PHA is an intracellular polyester synthesized by many microorganisms. It is a natural polymer biomaterial with good biocompatibility, biodegradability and plasticity. The thermal processing properties can be used as biomedical materials and biodegradable packaging materials.
  3. Polybutylene succinate (PBS): PBS has excellent comprehensive performance, reasonable cost performance, and is extremely versatile. It can be used in packaging, tableware, cosmetic bottles and medicine bottles, disposable medical supplies, agricultural films, pesticides and fertilizers. Release materials, biomedical polymer materials and other fields.
  4. Polycaprolactone (PCL): In addition to the characteristics of easy processing of thermoplastics, PCL also has the characteristics of biodegradability, biocompatibility, shape temperature control and memory, and is mainly used as a controlled release drug carrier. Fully degradable plastic surgical sutures and other medical materials.
