By making composites with bioplastics and other organic and inorganic polymers, the field in which plant fibers can be used are even more expanded.
OrganoClick are working in two different areas where plant fibers are the foundation. By supplying functional additives for demanding applications within packaging and specialty papers, we improve the performance and economy of our customers’ products. An examples is OC-aquasil™, a treatment to render paper with super-hydrophobic properties while maintaining the papers breathability. Another example is a paper strengthening technology that, binding the fibers together with strong chemical bonds that currently is under development.
Except from the paper based materials, OrganoClick is also working with moulded fiber composite materials. In collaboration with leading experts in fiber moulding technologies, OrganoClick has expanded the area in which fiber may be moulded. By using OrganoClick’s fiber modification technologies, composites are created with functions such as fire resistance, super hydrophobicity and improved strength and stifness. Applications include large products such as coffins and furnitures, and industrial applications such as automotive interior parts.
In this way, OrganoClick is by using natural chemistry, expanding the use of biofibers into new areas which has not been explored before.
