Trifilon BioLite® – Injection molding material


Trifilon BioLite® is a greener alternative to molded plastics from a leading Swedish biocomposite-maker. It blends polypropylene from responsible sources with industrial hemp fibers from Northern European farms. The blends are available in different ratios, currently from 10 to 30% fiber-fill. Trifilon delivers granulates that can be used in existing injection molding machines. Because of the natural strength of the hemp fibers and Trifilon’s fiber-refining technology, BioLite has excellent mechanical qualities and replaces pure-fossil plastics as well as mineral- or glass-reinforced plastics. Its light weight was one reason it was named a finalist in the World Wildlife Fund’s Climate Solver competition.


The natural fiber in BioLite reduces CO2 footprint for production of molded plastic components by 34% at the very least. And it’s recyclable after use. Trifilon’s fiber processing allows for lighter colors than other biocomposites. BioLite can be colored using standard master-batching. Its plant fibers can be shown off if desired. And it achieves a number of surface finishes, matte or polished.

Reasons to choose Trifilon's materials:

  • High performance and lightweight
  • Replaces fossil-derived materials
  • Reduces carbon footprint
  • Organic look with its visible fiber
  • Works with standard machines and tooling
  • Can be colored using standard masterbatching
  • An easy step towards a greener economy
