Industrial hemp hurd has been used across global manufacturing as a filler in numerous materials. The cost and weight benefits are providing realistic alternatives to the additives already used across industry.
Heartland’s Imperium Fillers are made of hemp hurd engineered for polymers, designed to become the standard for bio-based additives. For the first time ever, manufacturers have the opportunity to replace the traditional mineral-based fillers and leverage new, lightweight, low cost, and sustainable alternatives.
Almost every plastic you’ve used has a filler in it to reduce cost. These fillers provide no performance benefits and are usually toxic. Many of the toxins like crystalline silica and asbestos found within traditional fillers have been found to be carcinogenic.
Every manufacturer is looking for a simple path to replace these toxic fillers with sustainable alternatives. The only bottleneck stopping manufacturers is the fact that there is no existing supply chain.
Imperium Fillers are a 1:1 replacement for existing mineral fillers. These hemp=based fillers provide a small performance increase, but ultimately reduce the cost and weight of any product that uses them.
This is the first time in history that sustainable materials have reached an inflection point where they cost less than existing materials.
