The new bio-resin STRUKTOL® VP3830 is developed in cooperation of Schill+Seilacher “Struktol” GmbH, Hamburg, and manaomea GmbH, Munich. The resin is considered to be highly innovative as it consists of >99 % natural, renewable raw materials. Manaomea already uses the bio-resin successfully in the production of furniture and pens. In this process, the polyester resin is cured together with natural fibres and carefully selected remains of clothing textiles.

Initial trials with STRUKTOL® VP3830 in SMC applications are showing promising results. Further developments are targeted at replacing classic styrene-based polyester resins and extending the range of applications into technical lightweight structures.
