Wood Plastic Composites for injection molding and extrusion
If you like the convenience and freedom for the design and processing of plastics, but are looking for a natural wood appearance, then Fibrolon® is the ideal solution. It looks like wood, but can be processed like plastic on existing equipment.
Fibrolon® is a fantastic combination of plastic and wood, which are two very commonly used materials. The high quality of the surface and the de ned wood structure gives components made from Fibrolon® a unique charm and character. It looks like wood and feels like wood, but unlike wood itself, Fibrolon® can also be processed into complex structures and design elements.
Conventional plastics, such as polypropylene (PP) as well as bio-based and biodegradable plastics can be used as the polymer base. The proportion of renewable raw materials used can be adapted to customer requi- rements. In addition, biodegradable types (according to EN 13432) are available.
