Gallery: PEGA’s Revolutionary Paper Alloy Can be Used to Create Consume...

 

On show this week at the Milan Furniture Fair are PEGA consulting group’s remarkable prototypes made with their new and revolutionary biodegradable, recyclable and reusable material. Able to be injection molded just like standard ABS plastics, the new material is a recycled paper and polypropylene alloy that has been engineered for use in creating even the most intricate parts for consumer electronics.

The new Paper PP Alloy is a major advancement over some of the previous material produced by PEGA due to its durability, low cost, and ability to be molded in any shape. Prototypes of a laptop now on show in Milan already provides insight into potential of this green material – particularly in the detailing of specific electronic parts.

In the past, the folks at PEGA have produced a number of other notable innovations for the technology industry, including components for laptops made from plant based materials like bamboo, cellulose acetate, and polylactic acid (PLA).
