A 20% LIGHTER BIOPLASTIC
The Biowert company is using grass to manufacture a bioplastic that is lighter than other, similar materials and which has no environmental impact.
This bioplastic combines switchgrass and recycled plastic from different types of polymers and is ideal for injection moulding due to its excellent flow properties.
Moulded pieces are up to 20% lighter than those made with polypropylene or polyethylene.
The Erum group is looking into possible uses of this material in some ranges of plastic hangers, without reducing their mechanical or resistance and its economic repercussions on manufacturing and transport.
