Advantages of karuun® for the Automotive & Aviation industries

A natural, high-tech material for sustainable mobility concepts

As an intelligent answer to plastic, karuun® puts commercial, social and environmental goals on an equal footing

You make an effort to be sustainable – and it shows: to preserve tropical forests and a secure livelihood in the long term for farmers at the production site in Indonesia. Short transport routes to the important production and sales market in China helps to further reduce CO2 emissions. This way we can take care of the environment together.

High tech from nature

karuun® is tested according to automotive standards and is ready for series production

Rattan is a naturally lightweight material with enormous potential for processing: from 3D shaping and components with extreme radii to back-injection plastic. The material’s robust fibres prevent splintering or blunt fractures, making karuun 3D both astonishingly stable as well as a safe and high-performance alternative to plastic. Plus it doesn’t give off any toxic vapours.
