Summary:

A biobased and biodegradable alternative to plastics.

viber consumer goods include plates, bowls, pots and bekers.


Description:

vibers materials are based on Miscanthus Giganteus, also known as Elephants gras.

vibers can easily be processed on existing equipment to produce injection molded parts, film and trays via thermoforming without the need for hardware changes.

Instructions for using viber consumer goods: Wash vibers by hand in a lukewarm soapy water, dry thoroughly and use it only for cold products. You can use vibers up to a temperature of 45 degrees Celsius. Do not put vibers in the dishwasher and never use it for hot drinks or a hot meal.
