Vestamid Terra

Polyamide of biological origin

35/2011

Vestamid Terra even natural materials can be high performance. The polyamide-based organic products from Vestamid Terra by the company evonik, reinforced with natural fibres have excellent mechanical and physical characteristics. compared to plastics derived from petroleum, they have a lower environmental impact and co2 emission. There are two types of polyamides of biological origin: the first is 100% organic (1010), while the second is only 60% derived from renewable resources, such as castor oil (610). These materials lend themselves to processing by injection moulding and the production of filaments. With VeSTAMiD® earth, enriched with bamboo fibre, a prototype for a virtually indestructible frame for glasses has been produced.
