Our commitment to sustainability and renewability
Our goal is to make the greatest possible contribution to environmental protection at all times. That‘s why all premium figures are made of fiberglass-reinforced plastic and laminated with sustainable bioresin. We only use waterbased emulsion paints. In addition, our antiscratch coating protects against dirt and scratches, making it easy to clean.
Wax-coated fiberglass So that no harmful particles are released during production, our glass fiber mats are wax-coated.
Production ISO certified production according to European standard. Occupational safety and working conditions with certified extraction systems and water curtains. Our hands are made of non-toxic PVC. The flexible fingers prevent damage when falling.
Susterra® Propanediol is 100% biobased. petroleum free and naturally derived through corn sugar fermentation.
Susterra® is made from a rapidly-renewable source and is a unique sustainable material
Susterra® requires 38% less energy to manufacture and generates 42% less greenhouse gases (GHG) versus petroleum based materials.
Proven performance that meets all industrial requirements and standards
High quality resin that is compatible with existing materials for ease of use in production
”Biobased Content” is the percentage of the total organic carbon that is modern (present day) in origin.
Analyses were performed by conventional radiocarbon analytical methods using ASTM method D6866. -Analyses are believed to be accurate to within 2-3% (absolute).
