Daika developed a new material which is 100% natural. Although wood is one of the most loved raw materials, it's ability to be shaped is limited. It’s a solid and therefore can't be molded. Daika overcomes this challenge and allows wood materials to be extruded, molded or printed. This opens the door for new opportunities and applications for shaping and processing wood.
Imagine your typical keyboard made out of wood without any real design limitations.
Daika is doing just that, while using raw material made out of the 3 billions tons of wasted wood WW. Products made from Daika's materials retain the properties of wood such as touch and appearances, and are completely sustainable as opposed to wood-like plastics.
Yearly average of 3 billion tons of wood waste world wide.
Digitalization of wood fabrication, From scrap wood to quality products.
Our technology will lead to the creation of formulations for machines to digitally fabricate wood products. Current wood fabrication use hazardous materials, requires large storage spaces for stock materials, non digital fabrication, personalization requires labor and equipment. Technology for mass production already exist and can be adapted, eliminating the amount of resources needed for R&D.
Daika, has developed a new material which is 100% natural.
The material is based on natural binders and wood particles.
