TimePlast™ produces a nano-degraded plastic product able to deliver the same performance and shelf life as its standard plastic counterpart. The end product is composed of 97.79% naturally benign carbon wax.
TimePlast™ has created a powerful solvent through the proven synthesizing principles of Abiogenesis. This solvent mimics the two enzymes produced by the Ideonella sakaiensis bacteria, discovered in Japan, which is able to digest plastic. By reproducing these enzymes chemically, they can be heated without denaturalization.
Using the energy from a given plastic’s manufacturing process, we were able to catalyze (dramatically speed up) the bacteria-parallel digestion. The plastic product is left with a much more benign chemistry. The chemical digestion process utilizes the resin’s manufacturing residence time to essentially turn back a polymer’s heat history.
In addition, TimePlast™ marks using Solvation and Oxidation weak spots on the polymer chain to be no longer than that of Terephthalic acid (a wax-like material); and in the case of PET Ethylene glycol in HDPE/LLDPE, PE Wax when these
TimePlast™ altered-plastics eventually break down in nature.
HOW DOES TIMEPLAST WORK?
TimePlast™ forces the chemical structure to go backwards by extrusion-heated-nano-depolymerization and wax micro-formation. As a result, the recyclability of plastic improves by 307.5% (HDPE studies.)
