The bio-resin source from waste streams of other industrial processes, such as wood pulp and bio-fuels production. Recommended for use in interior projects, it is used in the creation of furniture and worktops.

RPLA2523 Plastic

Solid polycarbonate sheet containing 95% to 100% pre-consumer recycled material. The waste used is generated outside the production plants, during the manufacturing phase of the final piece. The material, which can be hot or cold formed, is used in the manufacture of components and furniture.

RCOT2522 Cotton

Material made of post-industrial recycled cellulose derived from cotton linters, a by-product of the cotton industry that would otherwise be discarded. Available in a range of natural colours obtained without the use of chemical dyes or mordants, it is used in the production of tiles and cladding panels with acoustic insulation characteristics.

ROTH2521 Others

Material made of plant-based biomass, sourced primarily from the cores of corn cobs. This organic waste, which cannot be used for human consumption, are widely available and usually destined for fermentation, burning as biomass or remaining on the field. The corn cobs are collected and dried. When the cobs are dry, a shredding process produces the biomass that becomes the material. The material is then mixed with pigments and other plant components (sidestreams from bioethanol production) to create a 99.5 % plant-based recipe. Only the pigments, added to the mixture to produce the colours, are not yet of organic origin, but are biodegradable. Through a high-pressure pressing process and the addition of heat, the polymers in the biomass activate and form strong bonds, which results in a strong and stable end product. Finally, the material is cut and finished with a bio-based waterproof coating. It is used in vertical cladding, as an alternative to ceramic or HPL materials, with a demountable anchoring system to allow for complete repair and replacement.

RPLA2520 Plastic

Yarn made of 100% recycled polyester made from ocean-bound plastic. It can be textured, dyed and finished as required. It can be plyed, friction or crinkle textured or be twisted. It is used for fabric, thanks to a wide range of optional properties, used in sportswear and functional clothing, for home textiles, for upholstery fabrics and for the automotive sector.

NOTHCOR2519 Others, Cork
