100% Commercially Compostable Injection Molding Development

IEKO’s product engineers and manufacturing partners worked through most of 2018 to develop an injection moldable 100% commercially compostable compound. Here you see an aluminum temporary injection mold made to produce test tubes per the engineers specifications. The trick was to develop tubes that can withstand repeated use by the end consumer, but be thin enough to biodegrade and disintegrate completely over the 90 day certification period into healthy nutrient rich soil.
