Made to Endure
nature2need´s eco-compound grades are sustainable, durable polymers. The material reduces the use of traditional plastics by using up to 75 weight-% of natural bio-content as reinforcement or filler:
- Spectadur grades are reinforced with bamboo fibers, rice husk and wheat straw/husk
- Biodur grades are blends with biopolymers filled with mineral & organic fillers
nature2need eco-compounds are delivered as pellets suitable for injection & extrusion moulding and as sheets suitable for compression moulding & thermoforming. To suite different product needs, we have grades with varying mechanical, thermal and processing properties. All grades are ready-to-use feedstock molding grades (delivered as compounds) or thermforming/compression molding grades (delivered as sheets, glossy finish, available in sizes up to 2.00 m (in extrusion direction) to 1.30 m (perpendicular), thickness of 0.6 mm to 2.5 mm).
Based on specific needs, we can tailor and customize all material grades to customer requirements.
nature2need's eco-compounds are labelled with "Made to Endure".
Spectadur grades are durable bio-compounds and bio-sheets based on PP or LD-/HD-PE. All Spectadur grades are reinforced with high-performing bamboo fibers, rice husk and wheat straw/husk; that is why Spectadur needs less non-bio-degradable plastics content to perform so well!
Spectadur grades perform better than the virgin polymer; the materials can be recycled.
Biodur grades are sustainable blends of durable polymers like PP or LD-/HD-PE and bio-polymers like Thermoplastic Starch (TPS). Our Biodur grades aim to reduce the amount of non-bio-degradable plastics. There are a few applications out there, where bio-polymers only do not fit - not yet. Biodur grades are lower in price than the virgin polymer.
