OTHCOT2235 Others, Cotton

Material made of 30% cellulose fibres with 70% organic cotton. Cellulose is extracted from the plant Calotropis that produces two hollow-cellulose fibres: the pod fibres are extremely soft and light in weight, the stem fibres are strong and almost impossible to break with bare hands. All the production process is focused on environmental sustainability, from production and processing to ultimate disposal. The plant grows wildly at deserted lands with no water, no care, no pesticides. The dyeing and colour fixing processes are carried out using vegetable and natural materials, while once fibres are extracted, the waste are mixed with different substances to produce repellents. It is used to make wide varieties of fabrics - from simple knits to high end Jacquard weaves.

RTEX2234 Textile waste

Material made of natural hemp fibre plant together with polypropylene. Marketed as pellets they can be used as semi-fabricates in several injection mould processes. It is used in the manufacture of many products: from plastic cups to desk drawers to transport pallets.

NBAM2232 Bamboo

Material made of natural bamboo tiles, characterized by a smooth or rough surface. It is used in the creation of mosaics for wall covering in residential or public areas.

RBPLCER2231 Cereals

Material derived from the union of a biodegradable bioplastic with rice husk, the skin that covers the grain and which is discarded during the first stages of rice processing. It can be used in all injection moulding or extrusion machinery and is used as a substitute for chemical-based plastics.

NCOT2230 Cotton

Sheet made of 100% high-grade cotton fibres. It is used instead of cellulose sheets, in the production of products for paper industry.

RPLA2229 Plastic

Material made of 85% post-consumer recycled PET obtained from the separate waste collection of plastic bottles, combined with ground stones, as well as mother-of-pearl and pigments free of heavy metals and contaminants. It can be applied in dry, humid and submerged areas; it is used in the creation of coatings in kitchens and bathrooms.

RNCOTOTH2228 Cotton, Others

Soft and foam-like material, made of mycelium and upcycled textile residues, obtained from short and dusty fibers of cotton, which cannot be used in upholstery or yarn production. Characterised by a unique velvety finishing and a 3D shape, it is used in the production of wall coverings and is feature excellent performances in sound absorbing the frequencies of speech.

RNPAPPAP2227 Paper

Material  produced with a high composition of post-industrial and post-consumer recycled cellulose, combined with virgin cellulose. It is characterised by a regular surface, a superior printability and flexibility when used for conversion applications.

RPLA2226 Plastic

Panel made of recycled fibreglass, produced with polyesters, ABS, polystyrene-polyurethanes and acrylics structured with fibreglass, today destined for landfill. The waste materials come from various industrial sectors: sanitary, manufacturing, nautical, automotive, cold chain, urban furniture and food. Through a mechanical process the waste is first ground and then cold pressed. By deciding on the density, thickness and weight of the product, it is possible to obtain made-to-measure, workable elements such as MDF and chipboard. It is used in the production of furniture, worktops and giftware.

RNPAPCOTPAP2225 Paper, Cotton

Material produced with 30% of post-consumer recycled deinked pulp, 60% of certified cellulose made from responsible sources and 10% of cotton fibres. It is used in the production of products for the paper industry.

RCOT2224 Cotton

Material made of recycled cotton, obtained by gently recovering worn-out clothes and denim. The clothes are shredded, de-buttoned, de-zipped, de-colored and turned into a slurry. Contaminants like polyester are taken out. What remains is biodegradable organic polymer made of 100% cellulose. The slurry is dried to produce sheets. which are then processed into natural textile fibers. It is used in the manufacture of clothing.

RNPAPPAP2223 Paper

Material produced with 30% of post-consumer recycled deinked pulp and 60% of cellulose primary pulp from responsible sources. It is characterized by exceptional brilliance of its surface with metallic, iridescent and shimmering effects, it is used in the production of products for the paper industry.

NHEM2222 Hemp

Panel made of compressed hemp fiber, it is highly breathable and characterized by a high thermal-acoustic insulation. It is used in the insulation of cavities, ceilings and floors, and can be used for making xterior insulation and finishing system.

NBPLOTH2221 Others

Material made of 43% corn polyols for industrial end-use, this corn is not the canned one produced for the food sector, and 26% of FSC certified viscose. Polyols are used at the top, whereas viscose is applied on the back. it is used as sustainable alternative to leather, in the production of fashion accessories and labels.

RNLEAOTH2220 Leather, Others

Material made of regenerated leather combined with natural latex. Characterized by an excellent strength, it is suitable for belt manufacture, furnishings and book-binding.

NBPLHEM2219 Hemp

Natural filament made of PLA with about 20% of recycled industrial hemp, obtained from leaves and flowers made from waste from threshing. It is marketed as a reel and can be used as a 3D print filament.

NPAP2218 Paper

Panel made with 100% certified cellulose fibre, no chemical additives, bleaches or binding agents are needed. The fibre is pressure and heat on plates with different profiles. The material can be used with paints, varnishes, oils, waxes and adhesives, and it can be worked like wood. It is used in exhibition, shopfitting and interior design.

RNPLACOT2217 Plastic, Cotton

Fabric made of 65% recycled polyester and 35% cotton. Characterized by an crease resist finish, it is used in the production of clothing.

RGLA2216 Glass

Material made with 100% recycled glass, blended with a mix of regionally sourced clay and porcelain for extra durability. Perfect for high traffic floor applications, it can be installed in both interior and exterior spaces.

RPLA2215 Plastic

Material made of 100% post-consumer recycled polyethylene, polypropylene and/or polyethylene terephthalate, made from plastic waste of flexible packaging of mass consumer products that would otherwise have ended up in a landfill or incineration plant. It achieves great interest for landscaping and civil engineering projects, as it replaces gravel or crushed rock in non-structural applications.

RNLEAOTH2214 Leather, Others

Material made of regenerated leather combined with a high percentage of natural latex, in order to obtain a greater tensile strength. It can be used in the realization of fashion accessories.

NHEM2213 Hemp

Material composed of hydraulic lime and canapulo, internal woody core of the hemp plant, joined by natural additives. It is used in all masonry constructions and in internal partitions. It improves acoustic comfort thanks to its soundproofing power and thermally insulates from cold and heat.

RNLEAOTH2212 Leather, Others

Material made of regenerated leather combined with natural latex. Characterized by a particular softness, it is used as material for reinforcement, designed to be coupled with leather or other materials.

RPLA2211 Plastic

Material made of 100% post-consumer recycled PET, it is biodegradable. Its fibres have been optimised to be more attractive to naturally occurring microbes, so as to allow accelerated biodegradation under certain environmental conditions. This allows the material to return to the natural elements: CO2, methane gas, water and biomass. After chemical recycling the fibres may be reused to produce newmaterials, while maintaining the same level of performance. It is used in the manufacture of fabrics or insulating materials.
