DuraSense™ by Stora Enso is the green, cost-efficient and versatile material for furniture. With the unique blend of wood fibres and plastic material, you can even achieve products made out of 98% renewable material – taking fossil-based material out of the equation and reducing CO2 footprint by up to 80%.
DuraSense™ biocomposites give you the mouldability and flexibility of plastics plus the strength and natural feel of wood. Play with an infinite number of design opportunities suitable for a wide range of products: chairs, tables, stools, lamps, pots or components like handles, knobs and legs.
Our biocomposite material allows you the possibility of making wood fibres visible on the surface of a product, enhancing its sustainability profile.
The production of wood fibres for DuraSense™ is based on thermo-mechanical moulding of the wood or different fractions of milled wood. These are pure processes, with low impact on the environment.
Products and production scrap can easily be reprocessed, resulting in enhanced strength properties.
With little or no changes required in existing production techniques, our material is developed to match conventional plastics and, therefore, fits existing moulds.
