The Polyfloss material is a non woven textile that can serve as a replacement to foam. It can be used for packaging, thermal or phonic insulation, as it has excellent insulating properties.
Because Polyfloss is composed of fibers, it can be easily molded, exactly like sintering. Whether with sheet metal molds, a simple iron or in an oven, the processes are not expensive and allow small scale production, unlike injection or rotational molding.
Polyfloss can also be considered a textile and be processed as such. It can be felted, spun, knitted, or woven, exactly like a regular textile. These techniques can be combined to obtain complex structures, all from one recycled and recyclable material.
