A blend of poly(lactic acid) (PLA) (70% by weight) and poly(3-hydroxybutyrate) (PHB) (30% by weight) with a solubilizing agent (PBAT) at four different concentrations (5%, 10%, 15% and 20% by weight per 100 parts of the blends) were investigated by FTIR, SEM, mechanical testing, water vapor permeability test and biodegradation studies. SEM showed that PBAT can improve the compatibility between PLA and PHB. The film show a great Oxygen transmission rate and Water vapor permeability property when the content of PBAT is 10%.
