Thermosetting/thermoplastic natural wood

Material Name

Manufacturer

MC 8224-03

POLYMERS

A wood and epoxy laminate that creates unique patterns and textures. Wood is blended into a mixture of thermoplastic or thermosetting powder and then is rapidly warmed and cooled using a controlled technology to press and form by compression molding into shape. It can be compounded with glass fiber to ensure stability with a resistance to tensions around 3,600 MPa. Certifications include the Forest Stewardship Council, which ensures that the material comes from responsibly managed forests that provide environmental, social, and economic benefits. The material can be made into complex forms for products up to 15 inches in size and with a minimum of 0.3 mm thickness. Colors and patterns can be customized and other natural materials such as bamboo, wood, and conch can be used. Applications include hard covers for phones and appliances and automotive interior parts.
