Fruit stone powders mainly consist of cellulose, hemicellulose and lignin.
These fibrous components paired with their mechanical and physical properties make fruit stone granules well-suited ingredients for composite materials, fibres and biopolymers.
Composite materials have enhanced material properties such as better resistance, stability or texture when compared with natural compounds.
Fruit stone powders can be used both with other renewables (e.g. wood fibres) and with inorganic compounds such as polypropylene.
Bio-composites and -polymers have diverse application potential:
- Floor, roof, deck and wall panels
- Car, plane and ship parts (surface and internal components)
- Medical and dental implants / bio-materials
- Consumer goods, packaging items, coatings
- Reinforcing materials and bio-fibres
- High-performance sport equipment
- Furniture and clothing
- 3D-printed objects
Unique Advantages of Fruit-Stone Powders and Shell Granules
100% renewable and sustainable: no crops are required as our materials are derived exclusively from fruit-processing by-products
Lower your carbon footprint: fruit stone powders and shell granules are renewable compounding ingredients made mechanically and without additives
Increased resistance: 3.5 on the Mohs mineral hardness scale, which adds longevity and durability to the resulting composite material
Flexibility: micron size adaptability and diverse mixtures tailored to your requirements
