A new highly durable and environmentally friendly building material
Australian company Zeo has developed and patented a new glueless process of creating a strong and sturdy, and most importantly environmentally friendly building material based on cellulose and water. Material called Zeoform, by its structure, it resembles hardwood and can be used in the manufacture of a wide variety of subjects.
The production advantage of using cellulose as a solid material is that it is the most common organic materials which can be extracted from several sources, recycled paper, cotton plants. In addition, it is present in many species of algae and even as secretion product of certain bacteria.
Formula of a material Zeoform mimics the natural process of so-called glueless hydroxyl spikes when the cellulose fibers stick together in the water. From the words of Zeo this process is non-toxic, does not require the use of any chemicals and adhesives, as well as a low-cost.
This results in a fully recyclable and durable as ebony, a material which can be given any shape (the material can be used as finished workpieces even as nebulizing means), and use as the core material , which requires the use of conventional wood, plastic or various kinds of resins. When you create a material Zeoform with a dense structure, it takes on the properties of water-resistance and fire resistance. The company is currently working on a Zeo special coating, which is still several times and increase the security of Zeoform will resist it the most extreme conditions.
