Trifilon Revo® is a recycled polymer
biocomposite from a leading Swedish biocomposite-maker. Revo uses high-grade
and high-consistency, post-industrial polypropylene that is reinforced with
industrial hemp fibers from Northern European farms. The blends are available
in different ratios, currently from 10 to 30% fiber-fill. Trifilon delivers
granulates that can be used in existing injection molding machines.
Because Revo uses recycled plastics
mixed with carbon-sequestering plants, the CO2 footprint for production of
molded plastic components is frequently positive (which implies that using Revo
takes carbon from the air because it supports hemp agriculture, which does in
fact take carbon from the air). Unlike other recycled plastics, Revo achieves
light colors, and it can be colored using standard master-batching. Its plant
fibers can be shown off if desired. And it achieves a number of surface
finishes, matte or polished.
