Markets

Automotive

In the highly-competitive and ever-changing automotive industry, a green, weight-saving filler option has never been more of a necessity. At Xyletec, our products are manufactured with functionality, sustainability, value, and quality as top priorities.

With a density approximately 50% lighter than mineral fillers like calcium carbonate or talc, lighter parts can be produced, resulting in improved fuel efficiency and lower emissions.

Other benefits of Xyletec products within the automotive market include:

  • Can be used with both thermoset and thermoplastic resins
  • Can be used for exterior and interior parts — both structural and cosmetic
  • Have particle size and distribution that provides a cosmetic surface

Commercial Truck & Bus

The commercial truck and bus market has long been driven by the need to reduce both weight and cost. With its low density and increased sustainability, Xyletec technology provides significantly reduced fuel consumption, decreased emissions, and the ability to haul greater payloads.

This bio filler is sustainable and green, which allows for effective long-term pricing that is not affected by oil price fluctuations.

Other benefits of Xyletec products within the commercial truck and bus market include:

  • Have a density that is 50% less than mineral fibers like calcium carbonate and talc
  • Have been demonstrated to reduce weight versus mineral fillers
  • Can be blended with glass sphere technology to maximize weight reduction while mitigating cost.
  • Can be used with both thermoset and thermoplastic resins
  • Can be used for exterior and interior parts — both structural and cosmetic
  • Increase dimensional stability
  • Have particle size and distribution that provides a class A truck surface

Construction

Construction is an industry that demands both versatility and high quality, making Xyletec technology an ideal — and green — filler option. With its ability to be used in a variety of molding processes, the practical applications are many.

Because Xyletec products are sustainable and renewable, their use can help qualify a construction entity for LEED recognition or higher LEED achievement.

Other benefits of Xyletec products within the construction market include:

  • 50% lighter than mineral fillers, producing lighter-weight parts that save on transportation cost
  • Allows for more parts produced (compared to an equal weight of formulation using mineral filler), reducing cost per batch
  • Can be used with both thermoset and thermoplastic resins
  • Can be used for exterior and interior parts — including vanities, sinks, tub shower surrounds, countertops, door skins window lineals, siding, and roofing materials

Consumer

Because the consumer market is ever-expanding and increasingly varied, a green, sustainable bio-filler option is essential. Xyletec products provide a valuable way for manufacturers to serve as environmental stewards.

Other benefits of Xyletec products within the consumer market include:

  • Can be used in a variety of consumer-related products incorporating plastics produced with thermoplastic or thermoset resins
  • Weight reduction
  • Higher esthetic and functional performance
  • May be incorporated at a 20%-60% level, depending on application
  • Provide long-term price certainty vs. fluctuating price of oil-derived resins

Septic tanks

One industry that undoubtedly requires reliable, environmentally-conscious technology is the septic tank market. Our products provide a bio-renewable, lightweight alternative to calcium carbonate and other mineral fillers.

With Xyletec technology, tensile strength and modulus (as well as flexural strength and modulus) are typically increased vs. neat resins, and provide the dependability that is so necessary in this market.

Other benefits of Xyletec within the septic tank market include:

  • Reduction in both manufacturing and shipping cost (based on a specific gravity half that of calcium carbonate and other mineral fillers
  • Fine particle size and carefully-controlled particle distribution
  • High filler loadings, which reduce the amount of oil-derived resins required (while meeting required functional specifications)
  • Can help to qualify entities for Federal Bio-Preferred Purchasing and LEED economic incentives

Bio-degradable Agricultural Film

The agricultural film market is a highly-competitive sector, and one that can benefit greatly from a sustainable, biodegradable alternative. The ability to break down naturally and safely is a characteristic of Xyletec products that not only helps to reduce cost, but also increase productivity exponentially.

Because Xyletec fillers are much softer than calcium carbonate, there is less wear-and-tear on equipment. This reduces both down time and equipment maintenance.

Other benefits of Xyletec products within the Agricultural Film market include:

  • A specific gravity approximately 2 times lower than calcium carbonate
  • Fine particle size and carefully-controlled particle distribution that allows for thin gauged films
  • High filler volume loadings, which reduce the amount of high cost speciality resins required (while meeting required functional specifications)
  • Provide long-term price certainty vs. fluctuating price of oil-derived resins
