“Every year in France, 40 billion tons of waste are generated by the construction sector. The toxicity of its constituents is a threat to both the environment and human health.”
SCALE wishes to bring value to an overlooked resource through the production of ocean-friendly materials.
At SCALE they believe there is great potential locked into wastes, especially sea waste!
Producing ocean-friendly materials is the greatest commitment towards the environment, they say.
For Scale, this means producing 100% recyclable materials – made from renewable sea resources – that are VOC and formaldehyde free and can get back to nature quickly and harmlessly.
Their beautiful stone-like material is supplied as panels and is suitable for use on wall coverings, interior cladding, furniture, and displays and can even be used for decorative home accessories.
SCALITE® uses a natural biopolymer contained within the scales.
During the manufacturing process, this biopolymer is extracted and mixed with the mineral part of the scales to create the basis of their material.
The outcome is a powder that can is compressed according to Scale’s proprietary process to form sheets of various dimensions.
SCALITE® is free from any deleterious resin, plastic or artificial glue that could potentially be harmless to us and the environment and they only use harmless dies to colour their products.
It’s suitable for
Interior wall cladding
projects in Retail, Hospitality and Office Design
