In December of 2018, industry representatives were at Steinwall to observe the processing of four different bio-based filled resin made from the pulp of agave, rice hull, coconut, and maple wood.
The representatives said,
“Steinwall was the best bio-based plastic processor they have observed,”
with regard to temperature and shear control of the plastic. Steinwall successfully processed the parts on their first attempt with these RheTech supplied resins. This was partially due to the collective technical team at Steinwall and the long history Steinwall has had with developing processes around bio-based plastics.
