Researchers at PEGA have created a new material called Paper PP Alloy, that could one day replace the plastic that is used to create the cases of our laptops and computer devices.
Paper PP Alloy is a brand new product that has been created using a combination of recyclable paper and PP (Polypropylene). The new Paper PP Alloy provides an environmentally friendly but also strong, sturdy, and flexible alternative to current plastic.
Paper PP Alloy can be moulded using injection moulding methods, and can be easily adapted without changing the manufacturing process. With the materials needed to make Paper PP Alloy easy to retrieve. However there are a few thoughts that is might me a little tricky to recycle once again after it’s been used. PEGA Design and Engineering explains:
“PEGA D&E is honored to be rewarded third year in a row with the iF Material Award. PEGA D&E takes pride in their research for environmentally friendly materials and designs, thus creating “The Bamboo Series”, “Cellulose Acetate” and of course, the new era of green energy “PLA + Recycled PC”. Now, we would like to introduce, for the first time to the world, the 2011 award winning material that would revolutionize the world of laptop computer making, “Paper PP Alloy”.”Filed Under: Technology News, Top News
