Two plastics firms based in British Columbia are signing an agreement to develop plant based products for organizing work desk and accessory office products to bring to the Canadian marketplace.
In collaboration with office supplies company TOPS Canada, Solegear Bioplastic Technologies Inc. which supplies materials and Columbia Plastics which is into injection molding are speculating initial orders could as much as 30 tons of material. The first line of office products through the strategic agreement will be launched by the end of 2015.
To collaborate with TOPS Products Canada and Columbia Plastics to develop environmentally sustainable products is a matter of pride, as commented by CEO Solegear which is based in Vancouver.
TOP Products Canada deserves recognition for its commitment to bring modernization in the category and meet the ever growing demand by proactively doling out new materials and partner with forward-thinking manufacturers, such as Columbia Plastics.
The polysole ® injection molding grade which is bioplastic based from Solegear consists of bioplastic resins which is suitable to be processed on conventional type injection molding equipment. Since plant based content are in the range of 65% to 100%, polysole ® LV is likely to be substituted by petroleum based polypropylene, and other high impact materials such as polystyrene and ABS plastics.
Consumers are continuously demand for premium quality office supplies that are environmentally sustainable. The materials designed by Solegear are such that can be easily dropped into existing manufacturing equipment and can be processed efficiently.
As such it has made the switch easy and cost effective for manufacturers such as TOPS Products Canada for bio plastics from Solegear.
