Product Guide

GOLDEN COMPOUND pro and GOLDEN COMPOUND green characterize the ready-to-use solutions based on the fibers of sunflower seed hulls, that have been developed for many applications and markets. In addition, all materials for injection moulding, which require good processability, density and impact resistance, have been optimized. Figures 1 and 2 show the different properties.

The market is always searching for newer, better and more environmentally friendly materials that are able to replace conventional plastics. These should offer at least equivalent material properties in the application.Furthermore, new developments have to comply with further requirements, such as weight reduction of components, easier processability and overall cost reduction. And of course,the products are supposed to result in sustainable and environmentally friendly solutions.

Fibers of sunflower seed shells

GOLDEN COMPOUND has developed a series of innovative solutions by filling plastics with sunflower fibers. Our materials can be used in various compositions to replace PP, PP with mineral fillers, glass fiber reinforced PP, PS and aluminium with regard to the material properties and application requirements.

General usage

Our standard material GOLDEN COMPOUND pro with 35 % by weight of fibers has comparable properties to PP with 20 % by weight of mineral fibers.
