Aqvacomp Oy develops and manufactures a natural fibre composite made of a renewable natural material, pulp fibre. It is used to replace plastics as well as reinforcements used for plastic raw materials: fibreglass, other reinforcements and mineral fillings. The key purpose of mixing pulp fibre into plastics is to improve the mechanical, physical and chemical properties of plastics and reduce the use of plastics.
At the moment, the main polymer matrices in Aqvacomp products are PP (polypropylene), PE (polyethylene) and PS (polystyrene) and their bio-based derivatives. Aqvacomp uses a patented wet-web process for manufacturing the natural fibre composite.
