Thermoplastics compounder RheTech Inc. (Whitmore Lake, Mich.) has launched a new bio-composite material called RheVision, a sustainable alternative to traditional mineral- or glass-reinforced polypropylene. RheVision uses bio-fibers from waste materials (initially wood fiber, flax fiber and rice hulls) to produce materials for use in automotive, consumer and construction applications. The resin can be molded or extruded and reportedly is easily colored.
