USA HEMP PLASTICS
Sustainability is our mission
USA Hemp Plastics (USAHP) is a full-service, fully integrated, biotech plastics manufacturing organization. USAHP is currently setting up Injection and blow molding facilities in Youngstown, OH. USAHP provides an alternative to our current reliance on petroleum-based plastics with an ecologically conscious hemp based polymer. We partner, exclusively, with forward thinking companies to develop high quality, innovative product offerings for their customers across an entire range of industries.
WHAT IS HEMP PLASTIC?
Hemp Plastic is made from a proprietary process which includes the hot, high pressure compounding of a range of hemp materials, paired with a range of strand-building polymers and additives. These are joined into a composite material to make superb bioplastic which is far greener than fossil fuel based resin.
Hemp Plastic may be created using both natural cellulose/lignin/100% vegetable bonds, or raw fossil fuel
based bonding strands depending on the needs or properties required of the end user. The polymer bonds
encapsulate the hemp particles to create desired properties in a cohesive, consistent material produced in the form of a bioplastic pellet.
RWG takes the material from grown plant, to powdered hemp, to pelletized polymer – which we then use develop own products for distribution around our planet.
A near term solution to a customer’s sustainability objectives
Gorgeous ‘earthy’ appearance
Affordable – we price beat other bio and specialty resins
Easier transition for customers - similar plastic properties
– Replace conventional “virgin” resins without significant additional capital
or operating expense.
Immediately Positive – Reduce CO2, Consume Waste, Recyclable
– at least 25% less fossil fuel resins + CO2 benefits of hemp farming
– Consume a massive and growing industrial waste problem
We want to use millions of tons of hemp waste and displace fossil fuel plastics
USAHP has up to 40 million pounds of
manufacturing capacity in the US
and is positioned for increased scale.
We develop, test, and confirm all formulations in-house, and can custom compound many conventional base resins.
HEMP PROPYLENE 25%
HEMP PROPYLENE 25% is a hemp filled polypropylene.
HEMP PROPYLENE is designed to be a drop-in replacement for conventional fossil fuel-based polymers
HEMP ETHYLENE (HDPE) 25%
HEMP ETHYLENE 25% is a hemp filled high-density polyethylene.
HEMP ETHYLENE is designed to be a drop-in replacement for conventional fossil fuel-based polymers.
HEMP ABS 25%
HEMP ABS is a 25% hemp filled acrylonitrile butadiene styrene (ABS).
HEMP ABS is designed to be a drop-in replacement for conventional fossil fuel-based polymers.
TRADITIONAL PLASTIC MOLDING PROCESSES
INJECTION MOLDING – the process of forming a material by forcing it, in a molten state and under pressure, into
the cavity of a closed mold. This is the most common production method used with Hemp Plastics.
3D PRINTING – a variety of processes in which material is joined or solidified under computer control to create a three-dimensional object. 3D printing is used in both rapid prototyping and additive manufacturing.
COMPRESSION MOLDING – the method of molding a material already in a confined cavity by applying pressure and usually heat. This process if often used in closure manufacturing.
EXTRUSION MOLDING – a process in which heated plastic is forced through a shaping orifice (a die) in one continuously formed shape, as in film, sheet, rod or tubing.
THERMOFORMING – a forming process in which a heated plastic sheet is molded through heat and pressure and trimmed to create a usable product. This process is often used in multi-layer packaging.
ROTATIONAL MOLDING – A molding process where pulverized resin is placed in the mold at high rotational speed to insure resin dispersion. Once in place, the resin is baked in the mold to form the usable part. This process is used often to manufacture large, heavy plastic parts.
