Xtreme Precision® Biodegradable in word and deed
The Xtreme Precision® Biodegradable BB’s are basically made of modified corn-starch combined with other biodegradable materials.
The corn-starch is modified in order to obtain heat-resistant properties, making this kind of material one of the only bioplastics capable of withstanding high temperatures.
This Biodegradable material is stable in the atmosphere but biodegrade in the natural environment and in general any-where microorganisms exist. This biodegradable material can run on many existing injection molding lines and is currently used not only for the BB’s but for a wide variety of applications in the plastic market and horticulture planters. This type of biodegradable material, being based on corn-starch and others vegetable starch, is derived from a renewable resource. Unlike plastic, this material can also be disposed of through incineration, resulting in non-toxic smoke and in a white residue which can be used as fertilizer.
All Xtreme Precision® BB’s are certified by the German test lab TÜV Rheinland to ensure compliance with all EU standards.
