Our knowledge in mixing natural fibres and a polyolefin roots back to the early 70’s when ICMA successfully pioneered, first in the World, the process technology for producing a thermoformable sheet for automotive interior trims made of virgin or recycled polypropylene and wood flour.
This patented technology came to be known as WOOD-STOCK™ and became a world wide success in the automotive industry with more than 50 plants worldwide, delivered during the last decades to the major car component manufacturers.
Compounding / Extrusion systems for Wood stock™ sheets and sheets filled with natural fibres — rice husk, coconut shell, hemp. Production output up to max 2,500 kg / hour.
Main applications are in following industries:
The continuos search for materials that are both economic and resistent is key in the automotive industry. Wood-stock is easily indicated as a natural support material and as finished product when is molded, colred and attached or laminated to other materials. From this factor stems the possibility of general application in the manufacture of vehicle bodies, from automobiles to trucks, from caravans to industrial conveyers.
Thanks to its ductility and its adaptability, Wood-stock finds a vast application in the Construction industry. In the World 70% of the traditional material for construction remains wood. This could be almost totally substituted by Wood-stock products which can be used from internal decoration to the building skeleton, doors, internal and external fittings, furniture, ceelings and so on.
