Nabasco 8010 is an environmentally friendly, biobased and circular composite. By using natural fibres and a bio-resin, instead of petroleum-based resin, a biobased composite is created with a very low CO2 footprint. Little energy is used for production. The raw materials also come from Europe, but the production is also European.
The patented material Nabasco 8010 is suitable for both indoor and outdoor applications. It is strong, dimensionally stable, has a long lifespan and is easy to maintain. In addition, it works well as a sheet material with various techniques, such as engraving, milling, laser cutting and water cutting. A high-quality PVC-free foil is available for the prints on foil. These films are more environmentally friendly than the conventional films and, in addition, have a higher UV-resistance.
After a long use phase, the sheet material is reused or processed into raw material for new sheets (100% circular). For the production of the biocomposite, considerably less energy is used than with materials such as metal, glass, aluminum and plastics.
