SCALITE©, a material 100% made with ocean friendly raw materials
SCALITE© is a bio-sourced material made exclusively with fish scales, an undervalued coproduct of the sea.
Issued from an abundant raw material, SCALITE© can be produced anywhere in the world.
SCALITE© possesses many interesting qualities :
- Unprecedented and unique
For the very first time, a waste for the fishing industry is transformed into a material,
- “Ocean Friendly”
We aim at creating only non deleterious and non poisonous materials, which are made from marine raw material and will dissolve swiftly in a marine environment,
- Cradle to cradle (C2C)
We create new circular economy cycles in the fishing industry.
The recyclable aspect is a major asset of our solution. Wastes of our production can feed into new material production
Any colour can be achieved, different colours can be mixed to produce various stone-like patterns
- Seamless joints
SCALITE can be joined seamlessly to provide architects and designers with uniform appearance
- Glueless bonding
SCALITE can be bonded without conventional glue, using its own resin.
- Conventional timber tooling
SCALITE can be transformed using conventional tooling such as saws, spindles, CNC, sanding equipment.
- Low energy production methods
Our manufacturing process has low energy and water consumption and use no harmful chemicals.
- Reduce global plastic footprint
With every kilo of our material it is potentially a kilo of waste taken out of our seas
SCALITE©, natural material can degrade in the environment.
SCALITE© can be simply moulded with no additive.
SCALITE© production is a low energy process.
SCALITE© can be machined with standard processes as milling, mechanical polishing using wood’s traditional tools.
For the very first time, a waste of the fishing industry is transformed into a material.
SCALITE© is made entirely from fish scales, a by-product of the fishing industry, abundant, renewable but scarcely valued.
