HempFlax Products

1 ) Non Woven

Q-1. Compare to kenaf, what is the advantage/disadvantage of Hemp?
A-1. Mechanically they are comparable, but Hemp is not water retted (less polution) and not hand processed (better work conditions), in addition, easier to cultivate than kenaf, so stable supply is possible. Hemp has less odor, and is not retted during processing, so that there is not a need for manual work. It can be said to be a high workability material.
Q-2. What kind of chemical(or natural) materials can be mixed with the Hemp fibers?
A-2. Synthetic fibers like PP or other natural fibers like flax, sisal, kenaf, etc and we can add liquids like odor.
Q-3. What are the certificates you have obtained?
A-3. Acceptance of quality at gate of customer, being secured by our ISO 9001 system of quality control

Q-5. What is the ingredients of Nature 50?
A-5. HEMP Fiber 50%, PP 46%, PEWAX 4%
Q-6. Compare to ABS and PP, what is the advantage of Nature 50?
A-6. Weight reduction, higher impact resistancy, improvement of CO2 footprint and unique finished surface.
Q-7.  When injection molding Nature 50, is there any special modification required for injection molding machines?
A-7.It can be molded by general injection molding machine but when supplying pellets automatically, it is necessary to improve the flow of pellets by attaching a screw to the feeder part. (Please inquire for more information)

4 ) HBP®  3D Printer Filament

Q-9. What is the ingredients of the filament?
A-9. HBP® is composite of hemp shive 20%, PLA 80%
Q-10. What is the difference with other Hemp-PLA filament?
A-10. HBP® is a COMPOSITE plastic of PLA and Hemp shive, but others are SYNTHETIC plastic of PLA and Hemp fibers.HBP® have a special composition, the layers are fused at the molecular level during printing, so that impact resistance, durability and printing precision are improved.
