IamNature® is a compound made of one or more polymers of BIOS family, all of them strictly coming from renewable sources (bio-polymers).
IamNature® is biobased.
The basic polymer is a polyhydroxyalkanoate that can be used as it is or blended with other bio-based products such as PLA or with other biodegradable materials such as PBS, PBSA, PBAT, and others.
To these blends, we add mineral fillers, with water-repellent properties or vegetal fibers, natural based colours and all a series of vegetal based additives that are normally used for the cosmetic market. Practically, all chemical synthesis products are completely eliminated
As a matter of fact, it is degradable like an ultimate natural material: the wood.
Like wood, it can ben used for years and years,but, in some conditions, it starts rotting and degrading, creating a biologic cycle.
For years, the study in the biopolymer world has been focusing on the shelf life a finished part and by consequence on the biodegradability of the material.
Today, the research of biopolymers is focusing more and more towards technical solutions that might combine the renewable source to the durability of the material and to its compostability.
Sustainable material alternatives that can replace the traditional ones, above all for applications that are more technical and lasting.
IamNature® is born for the production of durable and semi-durable goods.
