Bio-Plastic Building Components

Wall guards and corner guards don't make for particularly compelling architecture by themselves. Most people don't pay attention to them. They are an element in hospitals and offices, particularly where there is high traffic, to protect the walls from damage. And they are often made of PVC plastics.

Rather than being manufactured with PVC plastic, Arden Architectural Specialties has introduced a line of wall-and corner-guards that is made from corn-based biopolymers. Not only does this reduce the toxic byproducts of soft viagra tablets vinyl manufacture, and require less energy overall for the manufacture, but the end product is also stronger and more damage resistant, and is easy to recycle at the end of it's life.

Finding yet another non-food use for corn is not without its drawbacks. But finding a substitute for PVC and helping to reduce dioxin pollution are a positive step that EcoGeeks are in favor of. We're hoping this is just the cialis master card beginning of this trend. Bio-plastics should be showing up in everything from pipes to food packaging in the near future.

Food vs Products Balance
written by James, June 26, 2007
At what point will we hit the point at which use of Corn for non-food products becomes a crisis (only when its a crisis will our society do anything IMO)? Hopefully, eventually we will replace corn with whatever special plant that can grow on marginal lands for Ethanol production, but there seems to be so many uses for corn. Could any plant that can be used for ethanol be used to make bio-plastics?
I love it

I'm really excited about these bio-plastic components. A friend of mine has a plastic company and I'm trying to get him to start using and selling bio-plastic but it's a hard fight as his consumers are not ready yet.

Way to go anyway!

I've been in the plastics industry for over 30 years and always argued the case for plastics and the enviroment. Selling ecology to consumers is tramadol fedex overnight shipping not hard but, the product has to make sense in the first place!
I love to sell new products that have a chance to changeand aid our way of life.
