Kratiste products are manufactured by means of extrusion. Extrusion means that the materials are melted and then shaped into a model by means of cooling and vacuum.
The processing method makes these products smooth. However, the initial customer demand was precisely to create a structure where the plant can grow comfortably.
After years of development, a unique, patented process has been developed for this. This process ensures that the biodegradable climbing poles and support sticks not only look natural, but are. By adopting the structure of the natural habitat, plants feel comfortable with these products. The extra grip also ensures that the plant does not slide off the stick as quickly.
PLA and Miscanthus Giganteus
Tens of percents of Miscanthus Giganteus are used for the products of the Kratiste climbing sticks and support sticks. This process is patented. The use of the fibers improves biodegradability and requires less PLA to be used in production. Despite the fact that this is a biodegradable material Kratiste believes in using as many local and traceable raw materials as possible. The blockchain on which the raw materials passport of the products becomes visible is currently in full development. This serves the purpose of fully mapping the raw materials, so that a sustainable product can be guaranteed.
