BioLite is a material family of that consists of hemp fibers that are mixed with thermoplastic to form granules for injection molding. All consumer products made of BioLite can be traced back to European farms.
BioLite is an entirely recyclable alternative to non-renewable, reinforced materials that are made using e.g. fiberglass and chalk.
The hemp fibers make BioLite stronger and more rigid than other biocomposites available on the market. In addition, it weighs less than conventional plastic materials, improving overall performance. Products made from BioLite look and feel more organic. Due to its matte finish and organic appearance, many product designers choose this material to communicate to the consumer that they are making a sustainable choice.
The material’s application areas include vehicle components, clothes hangers, suitcases, kitchen containers, and cosmetics packaging.
