GluECO Adhesives’ AmalgAmaize™ is a biobased specialty polymer for the composite materials industry that offers sustainability and versatility. Powered by Zein, a fully sustainable corn protein, AmalgAmaize is engineered to bind agricultural waste products like bagasse and hemp stalks into composite materials suitable for various applications. Its versatile nature allows molding, extrusion, and machining, while adjustments in the polymer formulation enable the customization of end product characteristics, such as strength, flexibility, and fire retardancy.

"At GluECO Adhesives, we're committed to driving innovation that meets today's sustainability challenges while meeting or exceeding performance of current petroleum-based solutions. AmalgAmaize represents a giant leap toward a greener, more sustainable future. We're proud to be at the forefront of this transformation and look forward to seeing the positive impact it will have on the industry and the planet," said Dan Rosen, CEO of GluECO Adhesives.

M3 Labs, known for its commitment to innovation and sustainability, incorporated the polymer material into its production processes. The company aims to reduce environmental impact while delivering top-quality products to customers. "At M3 Labs, we continually seek innovative ways to elevate our products' performance and sustainability. The integration of AmalgAmaize into our manufacturing processes aligns perfectly with our mission to drive positive change and reduce our ecological footprint," said Joanna Kraft, co-owner at M3 Labs.
