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.

Zeoform manufacturing uses a water evaporation process rather than thermo-forming (as in the plastic industries). A combination of chemical and physical factors occur during evaporation that cause a tight bonding of cellulose fibres, with no other bonding agents.

1kg of suitable feedstock plus 6 litres of water equals 7kg (15.4lbs) of wet Zeoform pulp. When evaporated, the weight returns to 1kg of dry Zeoform. Note, water can be collected, filtered and used repeatedly.

Zeoform shrinks by 600% during evaporation/drying. Therefore, a 6mm thick piece of wet Zeoform will dry and shrink to 1mm.

Permalink


Zeoform can be moulded to tolerances of +/-1mm, with further CNC machining pushing tolerances of +/- 0.1mm.

92% evaporation from wet pulp state yields a dry hard material with 8% retained humidity. To clarify, ALL cellulose contains a small fraction of water, approximately 8%.
