Only to be used as additive at up to 4.0 % w/w in polylactic acid plastics intended for long-term storage of water at ambient temperature or below. Can form platelets in the nanoform that are in one or two dimensions thinner than 100 nm. Such platelets shall be oriented parallel to the polymer surface and shall be fully embedded in the polymer.
