Benefits of UPM Formi materials for injection moulding

  • UPM Formi can also be moulded in different colours, making it not only eco-friendly but also on-trend when it comes to high quality colour, a feature that is difficult to maintain with many other bio materials.
  • The absence of lignin in UPM Formi means that it is odourless, and it exhibits good processability that is compatible with existing injection moulding machines. it also has better colourability and a very smooth, consistent and bright surface finish comparable with high quality thermoplastics on the market today.
  • The key benefits of UPM Formi are that it can be moulded with variable wall thicknesses and exhibits less shrinkage than polypropylene, allowing for more accurate products.
