Rheom Materials

Rheom Materials core technology focuses on repurposing melt extrusion for scalable and affordable material solutions.

Melt extrusion exists worldwide allowing Rheom to work with suppliers and manufacturers without having to build a new system from scratch.

Rheom & Bio-based Suppliers

Rheom sources components from trusted suppliers who can produce experimental and scaled bio-based chemicals. We enable material suppliers to utilize their existing products by innovating new ways of using them, thus opening up new market opportunities.

Rheom & Product Development

Rheom can develop custom composite materials for specific applications. We design these materials at a small scale and can customize their colors, textures, and finishes.

Our production method involves advanced melt extrusion techniques to produce continuous rolls of sheet materials.

Rheom & Manufacturers

Through work with third-party manufacturers, Rheom can utilize existing plastics manufacturing facilities to efficiently produce bio-based materials at a large scale.

By using established infrastructure, we can deliver faster to the market and produce more sustainably.

Rheom & Customers

At Rheom Materials we help consumer goods brands that are searching for sustainable alternatives find solutions. We can embark on co-development opportunities, generating unique materials together, designed to fit customer specifications.

Also, if your company already has a production partner, we can move production to vertically integrated facilities.

Future-proof materials for a range of industries

Melt extrusion core technology

Shorai bio material

ShoraiTM

Our introductory material, Shorai™, is a bio-based extruded flexible sheet, providing an ethical alternative to animal and petrochemical leathers. This sustainable solution can be produced in various colors, sizes, and textures to mimic the natural texture of both traditional and exotic leathers while reducing carbon footprint.

bio based pellets for injection molding machinery

Benree™

Benree™ is a product line of fully bio-based pellets for injection molding. This versatile hard bioplastic slots into existing injection molding machines, enabling potential applications anywhere petrochemical-based plastic pellets are used today. Our formulation design and production technology enable us to tailor performancea nd aesthetics to meet a broad spectrum of end-use requirements.

woven biofibers

Woven Biofibers

Our introductory nonwoven materials are not the capacity of our future designs. We want to help brands address all their material concerns through one technology. More information on biofibers will come in fall 2024.
