Bioplastic goes to another level. Crafting Plastics! studio created Nuatan, all natural and sustainable plastic. The processibility of this material is especially good for value added products.

Nuatan

Eco Plastic with Aesthetic Possibility

 

 

After I posted 3D Printable blue apple, I searched new biodegradable plastic for a Go Green post and found Nuatan by Crafting Plastics! studio. I think it’s also interesting in a way of aesthetics – bioplastic hasn’t been very popular to make value added products because it’s not suitable for general “processes” with plastic.

 

Using the patented Nonoilen® technology, NUATAN is made of 100% plant-based biopolymers Polylactic acid (PLA) and Polyhydroxybutyrate (PHB) produced out of plant-based resources such as corn starch, potato starch, used cooking among others.
NUATAN is one of the first fully biobased and biodegradable materials that can be considered as a competitor to oil-based plastics in terms of properties and processability.


NUATAN can be processed by standard plastic industry technologies like injection moulding, 3D printing, extruding, CNC milling, laser cutting, heat pressing, etc.

Processible bioplastic with no waste

You can check CP! Eyewear, a collection of eyeglasses made by Nuatan on the studio website. I think it looks luxurious enough and can change the “aesthetically negative” attitude towards bioplastic.

Personally I feel scared with the reality that my products could outlive myself. Although it’s not easy to change all my materials into eco plastics right now, I’ll consider it seriously.
Strong and stable for as long as it needed, but can be “degraded” once they’re no longer serving their purpose – that’s all designers (with common sense) want their products to be these days.

 

[shortly Korean] 바이오플라스틱 Nuatan – 생분해 플라스틱은 흔히 후가공성이 좋지 않아서 디자인에 한계가 있는 편입니다. 이 제품은 후가공에 적합하게 개발된 바이오플라스틱으로 관심을 갖고 지켜보려는 소재입니다.
