Biobased and Biodegradable Resin - Has properties similar to epoxy resin
This new type of resin is made from biobased raw materials where a large percentage is renewable starch. It is biodegradable when exposed to naturally-occurring bacteria species. The resin is available as a low-viscosity system with a base and a curing agent, as a thermoplastic compound for injection moulding, and as a fibre for textile production and compression moulding of fibres.
The resin can substitute for traditional oil-based resins in many industries, including the automotive, wind energy, aerospace, textile, and construction industries. The resin binds well to natural fibres such as wood, flax, hemp, cotton, and jute; it is therefore well suited for the production of biodegradable composite products. One potential application is for binding wood veneer and fibres in compression moulded plywood and fibreboard.
The resin is processable with known thermoplastic techniques and can be processed at temperatures below 200°C.
Use it to create 100 percent biobased furniture.
The sample is granules of the compound for injection moulding. You get a couple of grams in a small container as seen on the product picture.
All samples come with a laminated information card, which includes contact details for the supplier.
