Biopolymers from wood fibres and polylactide (PLA) are an alternative to traditional food packaging made from plastics. Wood and PLA are 100 % biobased and open up new opportunities to fulfil the requests of industry and consumers for ecological and food-grade packaging.
The Dutch company LUCO TOYS presents a new generation of its toy bricks: interlocking building blocks made from JELUPLAST® bioplastic. The wood composite creates eco-friendly toy bricks that are dimensionally stable and resistant to breakage.
After one year of development, the Dutch company LUCO TOYS presents a new generation of its toy bricks: interlocking building blocks made from the wood plastic composite JELUPLAST. LUCO TOYS thus expands its product range of interlocking wooden bricks and will in future also offer interlocking building bricks made from bioplastic.
JELUPLAST® bioplastic makes toys safer. JELUPLAST® is a composite made from wood and plastic that combines the advantages of both materials. The plastic content enables the material to be moulded three-dimensionally and adds elasticity to the toy, while the wood lends it rigidity and strength, increasing its resistance to breakage.
JELU-WERK offers a true alternative to traditional plastics with its food-safe bioplastic JELUPLAST®. The composite made from natural fibres and plastic is free from formaldehyde, chlorine, phenol, plasticisers and PVC. And it is suitable for coming into contact with food because it does not release any substances into the foodstuff.
Our customer Langmatz GmbH received this year’s Ernst Pelz Award for developing and launching a manhole made from WPC (Wood Plastic Compound). Presenting the award, Minister Ilse Aigner praised the use of renewable resources and the excellent quality.
In JELUPLAST®, the German company JELU-WERK presents a novel and versatile material for furniture making. Like plastic, JELUPLAST® can be moulded three-dimensionally and offers wide scope for design, yet it possesses the positive attributes of wood.
We’re proud of the bioplastic that we developed in-house a few years ago. That’s because it has a very special property: it combines the advantages of wood and plastic in one material.
Our WPC granulate can compete with pure plastic in terms of price and quality. And that has been the actual challenge up to now: only a competitive bioplastic has a chance of replacing pure plastic products.
