Limited quantities of Zeoform (material and samples) are available from our Australian plant now.

We are creating a Licensing Package to manufacture and distribute Zeoform in as many countries as possible to create a vibrant competitive network of companies offering a broad range of Zeoform materials and products to meet local, regional and export demand.

In short, yes. Comparing the mechanical properties of Zeoform with numerous hard plastics and composite chipboards, Zeoform competes favourably for compression and tensile strength, hardness and durability etc – without any toxic ingredients. For further technical data, click HERE.

Zeoform’s biggest advantages are its only two ingredients – plant fibres + water. Plant fibres are the largest renewable resource on the planet and Zeoform has the potential to offer a non-toxic process chain from fibre in the field to finished product with full biodegradability after products are discarded. Zeoform is a non-polluting biomass resulting in low net carbon emissions.

Currently, as a new technology, the know-how hasn’t yet been developed to produce precision components at an industrial scale, competitively – due to lack of technological development.

Flexural tests were carried out with an Instron 4505 testing machine according to ISO 178. Due to possible border effects and non-linear elastic behaviour flexural strength and flexural modulus of Zeoform is higher then the analog tensile properties. The measured flexural strength is 95 MPa and 17 MPa, the flexural modulus 9400 MPa and 1800 MPa for Zeoform HD and Zeoform LD respectively. PF-HM comes close to the values for Zeoform HD with ≥ 70 MPa and 7000 MPa for strength and modulus respectively, while the chipboard has flexural properties close to Zeoform LD. PVC-U’s flexural strength of 100 MPa is slightly higher than Zeoform HD’s.

Yes, however this will require machinery to be adapted from other industries (eg paper, milling) or custom built to exploit the full potential of Zeoform. This represents an enormous opportunity globally for mechanical and process engineers, adding further substantial employment opportunities to the Zeoform proposition.

Zeoform pulp can be moulded in a number of ways; sculpted by hand in both wet and dry states, sprayed onto moulds, 3-stage (machine) moulding process with varying amounts of compression and evaporation.

Permalink


Zeoform products require special equipment to mould or form the raw material– either converted from related industries (eg paper, wood processing, fabrication, CNC), or purpose built. Variables may include size and shape of products, design, special features, quantity, manual or automated, etc.

Not at this time. Injection moulding (in plastics industry) requires a thermo-setting material and special equipment. Zeoform uses a water-evaporation process with collapsible male moulds, multi-compression moulds, sheet makers or other forming equipment. It is possible that in the future, with sufficient resources, a type of ‘injection’ process could be developed.
