The innovative material from the Latvia natural resource, that has not been used effectively is created. For bio- composites production a real tree fallen down leaves are used. We decided to create new innovative material made from real tree leaves. Autumn comes and leaves felt down from trees. There are a lot of resources (leaves) that are not effectively used. This material can be used for handbags, clothes, accessories and interior design items. Bench top laboratory manual press CARVER (Carver Inc.). Twenty-five ton, manual, two-column hydraulic press. Daylight opening is adjustable to 16". Rigid cast iron and steel construction for precision and durability. Easy-to-read dual scale analog gauge, reading in pounds force and metric tons. (picture shown with analog gauge). • Manually operated • Clamping force 25 tons • Daylight opening 0" – 9-1/2" (Factory set at 4-1/2”) • Stroke 6-1/2” • Four (4) fully threaded columns • Heated platen package, including:
• Two (2) 15.24 x ” 15.24 cm electrically heated steel platens • 2600 watts per platen • Temperature range up to 343.3° C • One (1) digital temperature controller per platen • 0-50,000 lb Analog pressure gauge, reading in 500 lb increments (digital gauge also available) • 230/1 supply voltage FLA 22
This material can be used for design items.
