At Vorm Werk Producties B.V., we receive many questions regarding our bio-based profiles. We have gathered the most frequently asked questions for you in the overview below.
If you have any further questions, please contact us.
1 What exactly are bio-based profiles?
Bio-based profiles are produced from bio-based mixtures. These mixtures are plant residues and natural raw materials such as flax, hemp, wood, straw etc., combined with biopolymer. The other components of the compound consist of natural oils that are not based on fossil petroleum.
2 How does the lifespan of your products compare to regular construction profiles?
Our bio-based raw materials are supplied by various manufacturers who have extensive experience with bio-based polymers. In terms of lifespan, there is no difference between our bio-based profiles and ordinary profiles. An exception here are the bio-plastics, which are biodegradable.
3 Are bio-based building profiles suitable for C to C cycle?
Yes. You can of course reuse the profiles in their current form in another (construction) project. The profiles used can also be granulated, and a complete different profile can be made with the granulate. Sustainability at its best!
4 How are bio-based plastic building profiles made?
Vorm Werk Producties B.V. uses an extrusion technique in which the sustainable raw materials are heated in our extruder and then pressed through a mold (shape of the profile).
5 Are the raw materials for bio-based building materials specially grown at the expense of agricultural land?
Yes, there are certain raw materials that are specially grown for bio-based building materials. At Vorm Werk Producties B.V., however, we use residual materials from among other things, the wood industry (sawdust), coffee grounds and grass. (Non) governmental organizations also monitor the security of food supplies and protect nature from unbridled deforestation in favor of crop cultivation.
6 Are bio-based building profiles more expensive than normal building profiles?
Not necessarily. Request a no-obligation quote from us and then make a comparison.
7 What types of bio-based building profiles does Vorm Werk Producties B.V. produce?
VWP produces hard HDPE profiles and soft TPE, TPV and EPDM profiles on request. These profiles are produced based on the customer’s desired specifications.
8 Are bio-based plastic building profiles also available in different colors?
Yes. Natural pigments can be added to the granules. The approximate color code is determined in consultation with the customer.
