OUR FIRST MATERIAL, SCALITE®,
IS ENTIRELY MADE FROM FISH SCALES
A BY-PRODUCT OF THE FISHING INDUSTRY.
FISH SCALES FROM SUSTAINABLE FISHERIES
SCALITE® is exclusively made from fish scales, an abundant and renewable by-product of the fishing and aquaculture industries.
Scales from sustainably managed stocks of tilapia are also collected and processed into SCALITE®.
Whatever the fish specie, scales are always made with a mineral phase, hydroxyapatit, and an organic phase, collagen. However the rate of both components may vary from species to species.
A NATURAL BIOPOLYMER FROM THE SCALE
SCALITE® uses a natural biopolymer contained within the scales. during our process this biopolymer is extracted and mixed with the mineral part of the scales to create the basis of our material. The outcome is a powder we compress according to our proprietary process to form sheets of various dimensions.
No added chemicals!
SCALITE® was designed as a natural material. We, at scale, want to stay true to this commitment. That's why SCALITE® is free from any deleterious resin, plastic or artificial glue that could potentially be harmless to us and the environment.our commitment
