Timeplast™ is the first certified biodegradable plastic. The technology can mimic the natural enzymatic process to create biodegradable plastic. The end result is a powerful liquid that can turn almost any plastic into a wax.
The liquid is used to disintegrate about 98% of the plastic structure while maintaining all of the same properties as the original plastic. Timeplast™ is taking biodegradable plastic to a whole new level.
While plastic does degrade over time, the new additive decreases the lifespan of conventional plastic from 1,500 years to around 15 years.

Timeplast™, featured on PT Online, is the first and only patented additive for the nano-degradation of plastic. The company can mimic the natural enzymatic process up to 100% by using a thermo-chemical and synthetically-based approach. The end result is a powerful liquid that can turn almost any plastic into a wax.
Timeplast™ does not alter the color – and the same process of adding colorants can be used. Applications include anything made out of plastic, with the exception of high-performing plastics, such as ultra-high-molecular-weight polyethylene (UHMWPE). Waiakea will be the first brand to replace its 100% recycled polyester (RPET) water bottles with Timeplast™’s process.
