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 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.

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.

Zeoform comprises a broad range of materials with a unique set of properties that can be engineered to satisfy a diverse range of technical, commercial and market requirements – like other raw materials such as plastics, composites and metal alloys.

Zeoform is not just one material – but many – from styrofoam light to ebony dense. The density range covered by Zeoform materials starts with Low Density Zeoform LD at 0.5 g/cm3 at the lower reaching up to 1.5 g/cm3 for High Density Zeoform HD at the upper end (it should also be mentioned that density values as low as 0.3 g/cm3 may be obtained for porous Zeoform types). For comparison, at the lower end of the Zeoform density range, chipboard reveals a density of approximately 0.7 g/cm3, while PVC and PF-HM show density values of 1.4 g/cm3, close to the upper end of the range of Zeoform materials. PE-HD, with 0.95 g/cm3, shows a density in the mid-range of densities covered Zeoform materials.
