We want to make your materials lighter and more environmentally friendly
Addiplast Group has developed innovative solutions by reducing the density of its compounds while maintaining mechanical properties like standard materials.
We offer compounds based on Polyolefins reinforced with natural fibers not derived from food crops, for a weight saving of up to 20% compared to conventional solutions by replacing more traditional reinforcements such as glass fibers or mineral fillers.
The weight reduction is also accompanied by a reduction of the carbon footprint of the thermoplastic compounds developed in this way. ADDIPLAST Group carries out in-house Life Cycle Analyses (LCA) using software approved by the largest multinationals in various sectors of activity.
Lightening is widely asked for by transport and mobility in the broad sense. The lighter the vehicle and the more low-carbon materials it is made of, the more it will meet the environmental challenges imposed by governments and the manufacturers themselves.
Compounds reinforced with non-food plant fibers are intended for the manufacture of structural parts but also for the manufacture of aesthetic parts.
In this last case, there are 2 scenarios: either the vegetable fiber is visible to accentuate the natural aspect of the part, or it is not visible and will allow us to keep the color harmonies of the brands.
Plant and natural non-food fibers in polyolefin thermoplastics
In the automotive industry, for example, the use of non-food vegetables and natural fibers in polyolefin thermoplastics allow the manufacture of door panels, dashboards, and trunk boards.
