HSV has expanded her particle foam portfolio with a bio-based foam.
This high performance foam is certified compostable and is very suitable to be used for example as packaging material for the transport of valuable and fragile goods, when shock absorbing is essential. Bio-based foam is in certain aspects similar to EPP.
The high proportion of bio-based elements and the advantage of being certified compostable makes it interesting to use this material. For example, when traditional solutions no longer suit your needs as an end user, regarding to bio-based and bio-degradable solutions. This foam can be processed with our existing machinery.
Thanks to the high porosity and the specific surface condition of the foamed beads, it is possible to process the foam rapidly into an industrial composting facility. Composting tests show that test blocks (with the size of 5 cm and a density of 28 to 47 grams/liter) are recycled within five weeks, to transform into water, CO2 and biomass.
