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 pellets are produced out of polypropylene (PP) combined with natural fibers from 20% to 50%.

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.
