Elix ECO ABS-NF can be processed without having to modify machines and offers a number of key benefits. These include high stiffness, heat resistance, low molding shrinkage ratios, low emissions and weight reduction when compared to glass fiber-reinforced ABS. For example, Elix ECO ABS-NF has a density of 1.12 compared to 1.15 for ABS-GF. The material has been also tested for 3-D printing technology with impressive results, both in terms of processability and aesthetics.

The development of Elix Natural Fibre Reinforced ABS was undertaken under the auspices of the EEA and Norway Grants. This was the first time that a European ABS producer was given a European Grant for a project to investigate new sustainable ABS materials and composites.
