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?

Promoting Sustainability

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.

VALUE PROPOSITION

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

 

MANUFACTURING CAPABILITIES



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.
