Trifilon Switch® is a bio-based
plastic from a leading Swedish biocomposite-maker. Switch uses polymer resins
derived from starch, which are plant-based, and reinforces them 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. Switch is also available
for extrusion molding.
Switch has all its main ingredients
derived from renewable feedstocks and can be recycled after use or can be
industrially composted. Switch 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.
