Exploring fibre filler to lessen our impact


At Bowles and Walker we pride ourselves on being able to help our customers with plastic injection moulding queries, issues and improvements regarding their products.

In recent years many of our customers have been more involved with the environmental impacts of their products and how they can be mitigated.

In this regard we have been able to help some of our customers with lightweighting their products, utilising reusable transport packaging and offering more environmental processing options.

But most recently we are starting to get involved with a local movement where there is a great potential to replace plastic content with a renewable, inert, bio-filler alternative. We are excited to be moving forward with this project and hope to have preliminary trial results and components to report on soon.

We hope to be able to use these results to encourage our customers to utilize more renewable materials allowing their products to have a lesser environmental impact.
