The Moulding of Wood Fibre by the ‘Fibrit’ Process 790669

The moulding of wood fibre by the ‘Fibrit’ process uses one of our most basic raw materials namely indigenous timber, and converts it to components of complex three-dimensional form, ideally suited to many areas of interior trim in the automotive industry.
In our present energy-conscious era, wood fibre has the major attraction of being a raw material having no oil-based origin, also, on an environmental basis, showing great advantages when considering the disposal problems of materials at the end of their useful life.
This paper is intended to outline the process, its history, and explain the material's functional possibilities and advantages in certain applications.
