Product is based on Minima biodegradable resin (GP300) and free of heavy metals, phthalates and BPA. The part has a nominal thickness of 3.3 mm and is microwavable and dishwasher safe. Minima engineers worked with the product manufacturer on materials selection, mold design, and injection molding production.
Customer wanted to gain competitive advantage and market differentiation by offering an environmentally friendly alternative non-degradable mesh shower “puffs” free of phthalates, heavy-metals and BPA.
