Johan Kocks

Research and Development Manager at Bambooder, Netherlands

Bambooder has developed a patented technology to mechanically extract bamboo fibers and produce semi-finished products for high-performance composite applications. Bambooder’s main products are technical yarns made of long bamboo fibers (12-50cm) for continuous fiber 3D printing, UD tapes or textiles. All side streams are used to produce short fibers suitable for non-woven mats, injection molding compounds or 3D printing filaments. Bambooder’s products can compete with steel, aluminium, carbon, glass, and other natural fibers depending on the required properties. Johan Kocks is the R&D manager at Bambooder. Johan has a background in biobased sciences and brings his technical expertise to answer all the questions.
