Sussex, WI (PRWEB) July 24, 2012
Max-R, manufacturer of waste & recycling solutions tailored to specific waste streams, is announcing a major addition to their product offerings: a new sustainable material made from bamboo.
The trade name for the new material is Lamboo®, fitting as it's made from interlocking laminations of bamboo, the most rapidly renewable resource on the planet.
Boasting superior durability and strength, Lamboo® is 20 – 40% more stable than traditional wood and 3 – 10 times stronger depending on type and application. Additionally, only mature plants are harvested, between 4 and 6 years old, ensuring optimal hardness and strength. There are over 1600 species of bamboo – only 4 are used in the manufacture of Lamboo® to meet uniformity and performance standards.
Made from bamboo, the most rapidly renewable resource on the planet, Lamboo® may even help contribute to multiple LEED® points toward your green building efforts. Achieve a high-aesthetic and a more sustainable environment with our line of products incorporating Lamboo®. Additionally, the manufacture of Lamboo® requires 15% less energy than comparable man-made wood.
Bamboo is ideal for site furnishings as it contains a number of applications as it naturally contains anti-fungal and anti-microbrial agents promoting safe, hygienic surfaces wherever used. Meet the aesthetics of your project and ethos of your brand with our tailored Lamboo® recycling solutions and furnishings.
