Arctic Biomaterials Oy is a Finnish company producing high performance biodegradable and bio-based alternatives for demanding technical applications. The materials are produced on our long-fiber-reinforced-thermoplastic (LFRT) line. This proprietary biodegradable long glass fiber compounding technology increases the PLA temperature resistance and mechanical properties to new levels and opens a variety of possible application areas in the field where technical plastics are being used.
The environmental aspect and climate care are deeply embroidered in our company’s DNA. The two main key indicators in a products’ environmental footprint are greenhouse gases (GHGs) and non-renewable energy use. Compared to traditional oil-based technical plastics the amount of GHGs and use of non-renewable energy (per kg of polymer produced) can be drastically reduced.
Arctic Biomaterials Oy employees are handpicked professionals from the bioplastic field and this knowledge is available to our customers when developing new recipes and solutions.
