OVPolymers is offering bioplastics to meet the increasingly demanding requirements of sustainability. The materials are commercially available and compliant with relevant regulations regarding sustainability.
All polymers that OVPolymers develops are available in a version optimized for injection moulding, which makes them suitable for mass production. Injection moulding is the most common process technique in the polymer industry to create products made from polymers. This technique melts the polymer and injects the material into a mould. The mould has the shape of the product. Once the polymer has cooled down in the mould, it will have hardened. This results in the desired shape for the end product. This technique can be used in making various products: from small key tags to car dashboards!
Our special developed Espresso Polymer is perfect for long-term products like chairs, trays and coffee machine parts. With this material, the product will last for a lifetime. Our goal is to make the material even dishwasher proof.
Done with the product? Just throw it away with your kitchen and garden trash and it will degrade in the simulated enviroment of the waste processor.
The Cappuccino Polymer is developed to degrade in nature. However, the focus of this material is that it is still usable for many years. OVPolymers made this possible with the cappuccino polymer. Products like packaging of cosmetics or Cotton Swabs. These products are using a lot of plastic and are thrown away after their short life. These products can be made from the Cappuccino Polymer and will degrade by itself when it ends up in nature.
Single use products
The Americano Polymer is specially developed for products that don’t need to last a lifetime and are used only once. Plastic planters and golf tees for example, after use, they are thrown away or are broken and are left in nature. With the American Polymer, the products will degrade in about two months and work as nutrition for the soil.
Even better imagine planting plants without the need to remove the planter before putting it in the ground?
Wouldn’t that be really easy?
