  • Bio-Flex® is made of PLA (NatureWorks) and biodegradable natural fillers for extrusion and injection molding

    Bio-Flex® resins have mechanical properties comparable to PE-LD and PE-HD as well as PS and PP.

  • Biograde® is made of Cellulose acetate and mainly used for injection molding

    Biograde® resins have properties comparable to PS and an excellent heat resistance up to 252°F.

  • Fibrolon® is made of either PLA or polyolefins (PO) and contains European softwood from sustainable forests

    Under the trade name Fibrolon®, FKuR develops a range of Wood Based Composites (WPCs) for injection molding. These natural fibre reinforced compounds can be injection molded easily, in contrast to many other WPCs. Fibrolon® compounds have especially high strengths and stiffness comparable to wood. FKuR offers PP and PLA based Fibrolon® resins.
