Adding Power to the Plastics You Already Use

Plastics and composites that leverage the strength of the hemp plant as an additive will create sustainable solutions. It’s only a matter of time before the companies that are reliant on petroleum based resins, plastics, and reinforcement fibers start to consider natural fibers and carbon negative additives as viable growth opportunities.

Ripples Across the Supply Chain

Different forms of plastics are the backbone of many of the household products, equipment, and transportation methods we use on a daily basis.

The companies who lead their industry by committing to source sustainable products throughout their supply chain will win over customers and employees in a 21st century economy.

A Sustainable Competitive Advantage

Over the next few years, plastics manufacturers will try hemp fillers, hemp reinforcements, and polymers to determine what fits best into their supply chain. 

But, the only way plastics companies can leverage bio-based materials in their supply chain is if they have a reliable supply chain of organic materials that they can consistently embed into the products they’re already selling.

Every Stakeholder Matters

The customers and employees of tomorrow want to immerse themselves in products and companies who feel sustainability is part of their DNA.

It doesn’t matter if it’s a plastic bottle, a stadium seat, or a children’s toy; plastic companies who use hemp fibers can ensure their customers are getting end products that are stronger, and lighter, and more sustainable for generations to come.

Plastics That Add Hemp Fiber Are Stronger, Lighter, Cheaper, And More Sustainable Than the Competing Products.

The Highest Performance Materials

Hemp fibers can be used to enhance existing materials that are already used across the plastics supply chain. Our hemp fibers allow plastics companies to create high performance composites at the same cost (or lower) than a 100% plastic end product. It is not realistic for the global supply chain to shift toward bioplastics overnight. But, plastics companies who are already selling into the market can utilize hemp fibers as an additive to strengthen the plastic they are already selling. Studies have shown hemp fibers can be anywhere from 5% to 50%+ of the weight of the total plastic.

Polyethylene

Hemp fibers reduce the weight of a polyethylene matrix, while increasing mextrics like tensile strength, elastic modulus, flexural strength, and flexural modulus.

Polypropylene

Hemp fibers mixed with polypropylene have improved mechanical properties, low abrasiveness, superior energy recovery, good damping, and a high strength to weight ratio.

Polyvinyl Chloride

PVC is used in a wide range of structural material across the world. Hemp is a reinforcing material for PVC that will increase the stiffness while decreasing the density of the composite.

ABS

ABS (or Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) can utilize hemp to strengthen the injection molding and 3D printing of plastics. Increased mold strength streamlines production.

Polyesters

Although bio-based PLA's are a long way away, hemp fibers as an additive to other polyesters has shown to increase overall strength and durability without jeopardizing weight and cost.

Vinylesters

Vinylester mixed with hemp showed flame retardant properties of composites as indicated by the burning tests, thermogravimetry analyzes, and limiting oxygen index tests.

Hemp Fibers Mixed With Plastics Makes A Biocomposite That Creates A Sustainable Competitive Advantage For Companies In the Plastics Business.

The World Needs Stronger, Lighter, Cheaper, And More Sustainable Plastics

Carbon-Negative Additives For The World’s Plastics Supply Chain

Instead of focusing on removing petroleum based plastics, we are focused on utilizing hemp fibers as additives to strengthen the plastics that companies are already using. By utilizing hemp fibers, plastics companies are now creating a biocomposite that has a competitive price to the plastics that they already sell. 

Adding hemp fibers to plastic can help companies evangelize a new generation of eco-friendly consumers and employees. Here are just a small fraction of the benefits plastics companies experience by utilizing hemp as an additive in their supply chiain.

Higher Performance

Higher elasticity, flexor strength, tensile strength, and mechanical properties.

Lower Cost of Goods

By reducing the weight of the plastic by 10% - 50%+ plastic companies reduce their COGS.

Sustainable Production

Hemp fibers are sustainably sourced and processed before they are mixed into plastics.

Lighter & Less Dense

Hemp fibers reduce the weight and density of the plastics they are utilized with.

Plastics That Utilize The Strength of The Hemp Plant Are The Future of Materials That Make Markets Move.

Do More With Less Plastic

Hemp fibers increase the tensile strengths, spring loads, and brittleness of plastic parts that are used across industry. With hemp, the plastics industry can increase the strength and durability of their products, while positively impacting the environment.

Tensile Strength

The maximum stress a material can withstand while being stretched or pulled before breaking.​

Spring Load

The load which can be applied to a spring to compress, deflect, or extend it without straining it.

Brittleness

The tendency of a material to fracture or fail without significant plastic deformation when applying force, impact, or shock.

Hemp fibers can revolutionize the plastics that are already being used across the world. By adopting a sustainable supply chain, plastics companies can rely on hemp fiber to produce stronger, cheaper, lighter, and more sustainable products.
