    Biocomposite Filaments

    Biocomposite filaments are those formed by a matrix (resin) and a natural fibre filler. The matrix can be made up of polymers derived from renewable resources (such as PLA).

    The natural fibre filler can act as a reinforcement, improving the mechanical properties of the material, or provide aesthetic properties to the material by its colour or texture. Natural fibres can be fibres from crops such as hemp, wood, paper waste or crop by-products such as cellulose.

    Biocomposite materials provide an alternative to petroleum-based products. Filaments of the C2composite family are biocomposites and are made from a PLA base and filled with hemp fibres from controlled cultivation (Entwined), brewing residues (Buzzed) or coffee grounds (Wound Up).

    Recycled filaments

    The recycled filaments come from the recycling of materials or products. Recycling is a process whose objective is to convert waste into new products or raw materials for later use.

    Recycling is an interesting option in the development of 3D FDM printing materials. An example of this is Formfutura's recycled filaments: Reform rPLA. These filaments are developed from extrusion waste streams that are recomposed and homogenised into a high quality recycled PLA filament.
