- story by Trifilon AB
Trifilon Switch® is a bio-based plastic from a leading Swedish biocomposite-maker. Switch uses polymer resins derived from starch, which are plant-based, and reinforces them with industrial hemp fibres from Northern European farms. The blends are available in different ratios, currently from 10 to 30% fibre-fill. Trifilon delivers granulates that can be used in existing injection moulding machines. Switch is also available for extrusion moulding.
Switch has all its main ingredients derived from renewable feedstocks and can be recycled after use or can be industrially composted. Switch can be coloured using standard master-batching. Its plant fibres can be shown off if desired. And it achieves a number of surface finishes, matte or polished.
