COMPEO special: What’s wood got to do with it?

Natural Fiber Composites

For thousands of years, mankind used wood to build houses, wagons, bridges and ships. Other natural fibers likes flax and hemp were made into ropes, sails and corn sacks. And what exactly does that have to do with compounding? Well, over the last centuries, new applications and technologies have been developed to utilize, process and manipulate these natural fibers. One of those: natural fiber composites. Chemical agents bond natural fibers – everything from flax, hemp, jute, sisal, and cotton, all the way to wood, sawdust and rice husks – with additives into strong composites. These natural fiber composites are elastic and guarantee tensile and impact strength, while still being relatively light in weight. They can be used for various goods, but one of their main application fields are the automotive and aircraft industries. And with that, the circle is complete. What started out with wood wagons ended up in natural fiber composites in the automotive industry.

COMPEO, the new compounding generation of BUSS, is ideal for natural fiber composites compounding, suitable for automotive or aircraft industries.

With more than a hundred years of company history, BUSS knows when to rely on proven concepts, and when to adapt those concepts to current demands. In 2018, we successfully launched our new compounder generation COMPEO that combines longstanding expertise in compounding with innovative engineering. Building on proven concepts, developing them further, making them better, more effective, that is what BUSS stands for. Similar to natural fiber composites, which is only one of many compounding industries that our COMPEO can be tailored to.
