Liquidwood ADVANCED

CE74L-0001

With characteristics that range from ABS to Nylon, the material contains natural vegetable waxes, suitable for contact with food and compostable, may be transparent and extruded. Liquidwood is a new generation of biopolymers, consisting of what constitutes natural wood (lignin and cellulose). It has similar mechanical and thermal properties as natural, grown wood. Lignin is a byproduct of the papermaking industry of which about 50 million tonnes are produced in various pulping processes worldwide every year. By mixing specific types of lignin with natural fibers from wood, flax, hemp, sisal or other fibrous plants together with natural additives, novel materials are produced which can be processed even at higher temperatures and injected or extruded on conventional plastics processing machines in the same way as petrochemical thermoplastic materials. It can be used for industrial applications and consumer products.
