IDAHO FALLS, Idaho, July 24, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- BioLogiQ, Inc., a bioplastic resin manufacturing company specializing in environmentally friendly plastic products made from renewable resources, announced today that it has appointed R&F Chemical of Seoul, South Korea as Strategic Partner. R&F Chemical will focus on product development and engineering while also acting as exclusive South Korean importer and master distributor for BioLogiQ's portfolio of NuPlastiQ® BioPolymers.

For reference, BioLogiQ uses a proprietary process to produce NuPlastiQ GP BioPolymers (GP) from natural, renewable resources − plants. GP resins contain 100% USDA Certified Biobased Content, and are ASTM D6400 and EN 13432 certified for compostability. When NuPlastiQ GP is combined with traditional resins, the resulting plastics are stronger and more durable; reduce fossil fuel-based plastic usage and greenhouse gas generation; and maintain the recyclability, compostability, or biodegradability of that traditional polymer (i.e., HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE, PP, TPE, EVOH, PLA, PBAT, PHA).

Brad LaPray, president and founder of BioLogiQ stated that, "R&F Chemical is highly respected as a technological leader in the development and production of high-performance and highly sustainable plastic films. We are both thrilled and honored to have them work with us to make our bio-based products available in South Korea."

Peter Park, CEO of R&F Chemical added that, "BioLogiQ's NuPlastiQ resins have the capability to significantly improve the environmental profiles of our films and our customers' end products. This is a very exciting and timely opportunity for us."
