 At BioComposites Group (BCG), we design and build products that exploit the extraordinary mechanical qualities of common plants and trees, such as industrial hemp and flax. Based in the Canadian prairies, we draw our raw material from local agriculture and forestry industries. Most of it was previously considered waste. Our scientists and engineers exploit the incredible qualities of the industrial hemp plant to create an ever-expanding range of products, with the potential to solve critical problems facing industries worldwide.

 

"Everything we make starts with the genius of nature."

BioComposites Group Inc. (BCG) is able to provide pressed panel components in addition to fibre mat substrates. By utilizing a compression molding hydraulic press BCG can produce components for a wide range of applications such as: automotive door panels, furniture components, small packaging containers, residential door skins, and recreational/leisure products.

To produce a pressed panel “matched” molds are first loaded with the fibre mat substrate before they are closed. Pressure is then applied to force the fibre mat material into contact with all the mold areas. This pressure is maintained until the resin or other bonding agent in the fibre mat material has cured. See figure in photos. Fibre mat substrates, which have been engineered with a thermosetting resin system, require heat as well as pressure in the compression molding process to cure the resin. Alternatively, when using fibre mat substrates which have been engineered with a thermoplastic resin system the mat is pre-heated to melt the bonding agent prior to placing it into the open mold cavity. The mold is then cooled under pressure to remove the heat from the fibre substrate.

Potential uses for Terrafibre automotive include: door panels, rear package trays, load floors, instrument panels, centre consoles, pillars, seat backs, spare tire covers, and door bolsters. The composition of our mat can be customized to a particular application due to our unique ability to blend different fibres together. BioComposites Group Inc is situated in an ideal location to take advantage of relationships with our supply partners in both the wood fibre and agricultural fibre sectors. If necessary, given the application, our non-woven composite mat can be made from a blend of natural fibres and synthetic fibres.

BioComposites Group is developing and integrating renewable, bio-based materials as part of a long-term campaign to produce lighter components. One of the most significant recent developments in vehicle light-weighting and sustainability is the movement toward abandoning oil-based plastics in favor of natural substances for interior structures.
