Development of biodegradable ammunition

POLYMEX has developed a "biodegradable" ball for ammunition for recreational weapons such as: Powderball.

A specific specification was established with this client to develop a ball:

  • 100% biodegradable and preferably biobased
  • The Final Material must meet established mechanical criteria
  • The final manufacturing cost will be included in a range defined by the customer.

Here is a brief summary of the different stages that made up this project:

  • Definition of specifications
  • Documentary study - Bibliographic watch
  • Definition of possible processes for industrial production
  • Search for raw material suppliers
  • Manufacturing of first prototypes
  • Tests on the first prototypes
  • Summary of prototypes
  • Improvement phase
  • Validation of the final prototype
  • Going into production

=> This project resulted in the production of 100% logs designed by POLYMEX and developed thanks to the analytical study and the experience of research engineers .
