|Creative Composites is focused on new and creative ideas in the rapidly evolving bio-composite industry. Biocomposites, sometimes also referred to as Natural Fiber Reinforced Plastics (NFRP), combine various plant fibers and resins to form unique composite materials. Biocomposites are a viable and sometimes preferable alternative for traditional steel and fiberglass applications. They have proven to be lighter, stronger, more flexible and more cost effective for a wide range of applications. Compared to traditional composites like fiberglass, they require fewer environmentally unfriendly chemicals, reduce EPA requirements, and are easier to dispose of. Their inherent sound dampening properties mean they hold great potential in the acoustic materials market.
The ingredients to make bio-composites can be grown in the fields of Iowa and the Midwest. Fiber from alternative crops like kenaf can be used for fiber reinforcement. Residue from traditional crops can be used as filler in some products. Prompted by our research in this area, a farmer’s coop has grown test plots of kenaf for the past 3 years. Their results, as well as other research, shows that kenaf could be a viable alternative crop in central Iowa.
Creative Composites is committed to creating new technologies and processes that would benefit manufacturers and farmers alike. These new technologies may introduce manufactures to innovative ideas and diversity of products possible from biocomposites.
