ArtBIO natural fiber composite (NFC)

ArtBIO NATURAL FIBER COMPOSITE (NFC)

ArtBIO is a new natural fiber composite (NFC), developed recently by Art Plast and introduced to series production. ArtBIO composites are produced out of polypropylene (PP) combined with natural fibers content up to 30%. We also plan to implement production of grades with bio-content above 40% soon. 

PROCESSING

ArtBIO can be processed by both injection molding and extrusion. ArtBIO is processed as standard plastic compound, the only limitation is processing temperature, which should be kept under 200°C. ArtBIO pellets should be dried before processing.

ADVANTAGES OF ArtBIO

  • easy processing (non-dusting granulate)
  • resistance to moisture
  • resistance to rot and corrosion
  • resistance to UV radiation (UV version)
  • environmentally friendly, non-toxic product
  • easy machining (like wood)
  • does not contain PVC
  • 100% recyclable

APPLICATION

INJECTION:

  • flower pots
  • clothes hangers
  • garden fences
  • garden anchores
  • handles, decorative elements,
  • garden furnitures (chairs, tables)
  • other items produced by injection molding

EXTRUSION:

  • decking boards
  • planks / fencing rails
  • wall panels
  • poles
  • trim strips
  • wide boards
  • other items produced by extrusion process
