Degradation study report by Dr. Will Brinton in Woods End’s Laboratories.
    

   ​
1) The test was performed on Polypropylene and Polyethylene, two of the most used and common Fossil-Based Plastic.


   ​​
2) The Standardized test performed is called “GB21” an Anaerobic, 69.8 Fahrenheit degrees, which is the most realistic environmental test done to plastics. In contrast, nowadays so called “Biodegradable additives” only pass tests at 122 Fahrenheit degrees an unrealistic test, and also most of them are only Oxo-biodegradable, which means they will only degrade in presence of Oxygen; a huge limitation.
    
   
3) The test showed a 36% of weight loss in 32 days in PP case and a 21% of weight loss in the same period for the PE.


4) The test showed a quicker biodegradation than cellulose in the first 7-day period, in other words a Fossil-based plastic degraded faster than a natural polymer found in paper, this is groundbreaking. Cellulose has the higher biodegradability factor than any other polymer tested.

​   
5) The study also shows that the biogas production is indistinguishable from the background noise, but at the same time a very significant weight loss was achieved. This means our technology doesn’t require biodegradation, (Soil bacteria, water or oxygen) to make the plastic go away. Our additive makes the plastic degrade itself from the inside out. Dr. Brinton argues that the lack of correlation from the weight loss to the biogas production is due to the fact of the small quantity of test material, yet it is still sufficient to stablish a 36% of weight loss, this means that the correlation incongruence is the best indicator that our technology doesn’t work as the technology for what the standardized test was designed, and outperforms the test by achieving a weight loss without having to biodegrade. This is called Molecular Disintegration.
    

   
Degradation study report by Xiaojiang Wang, Ph.D., Evan Boyst, B. S., and Andrew Kolbert, Ph.D., in Avomeen Analytical Services.

   ​
1) It was certified that the plastic was indeed fossil-based Polyethylene.

2) It was certified that our proprietary liquid when put in contact with plastic it turns it into white wax (pure wax) with the lowest-standard temperature of any manufacturing process. This means Timeplast has the ability to effectively disintegrate the plastic during the manufacturing process, thus having a pre-degraded plastic from day 1.
    
 

Study report by Datapoint Labs.

   
The results show Timeplast treated plastic perfectly maintained the Tensile and Flexural properties: however, when pointing the alteration to the polymer chain in terms of the Carbon-to-Carbon bonds, this report shows that Timeplast managed to effectively lower the amount of energy required to break plastic, thus creating a plastic that has 22.89% (398.6 J/m Vs. 307.4 J/m) less Notched Izod Impact resistance. Taking into consideration the extremely low proportion in mass of our technology (1:10000) in this case, the only way to have such a dramatic reduction in impact resistance is by a dramatically altering in the structure which portraits the exact correlation in molar mass that exist in the entire formulation of Plastic+Timeplast.
    


Recyclability Study report by Datapoint Labs.

In this study, Tensile and Flexural properties were analized along with Izod Notched Impact tests, in virgin plastic, virgin plus Timeplast at 0.1%, virgin recycled, virgin plus Timeplast at 0.1% recycled, and virgin plus Timeplast at 0.1% recycled with Timeplast at 0.1% (added at the recycling process).

Results show that a virgin HDPE has 80.3 J/m of Izod Notched Impact Resistance after being recycled, however if the same HDPE is altered by Timeplast and then recycled, it's Impact Resistance goes from 80.3 J/m to 246.9 J/m, that's 307.5% recycling stream's quality improvement.

The study not only shows that Timeplast improves the recyclability by 307.5%, but also shows that when a Timeplast-altered HDPE is then recycled again (Third Cycle) its Izod Notched Impact Resistance only goes down 1.66% at 242.8 J/m. These results demonstrate that a Timeplast-altered plastic is a true recyclable plastic at an unheard rate.
