MJUK is a natural composite material, where raw wool which does not comply with the standards for the production of yarn and felt is associated with natural binder. The result is a sound-absorbing, heat insulating, fire-resistant material.
Creation of wool-based composite material is driven by the development of sheep farming in Estonia and Europe, where in the focus of breeding is the meat production and wool quality has not the priority. Wool has become a by-product of the meat production, which seeks to get rid of as cheaply as possible, even in the way of burning and burial. Even the fibers does not comply with standards, they convey same unique physical-chemical properties of wool.
The first steps in the creation of the material has already done in diploma thesis of Haapsalu College of Tallinn University Tallinn in collaboration with the Institute of Materials Engineering of Tallinn University of Technology. The applicability of wool fibers as reinforcement was tested in the composite, and a variety of technological processes in binding of the wool fibers and resin. In result were wool and synthetic resin interior panels.
Aim of our further work is to create a fully biodegradable material based on wool fibers and natural binder.
