How about a pistol with a wooden frame?

Posted by Rob Longenecker on January 18th, 2009

Scientists in Germany say that liquid wood is the plastic of tomorrow. Plastic was one of the great innovations of the 20th century, but German scientists believe a new invention, liguid wood, could soon replace the chemical in many everyday applications – what about pistol frames?

The substance is called Arboform — basically liquid wood derived from wood pulp-based lignin (a paper byproduct) and can be mixed with a umber of other materials to create a strong, non-toxic alternative to petroleum-based plastics. Also, the scientists have demonstrated that the substance is recyclable.

They are already making car parts and other durable items from this new bio-plastic. Whether they ever make a pistol frame from this substance, I thought you might like a heads-up. Keep you eye open for new products made from liquid wood.

We’re used to new products and innovations, especially at Tucker Gunleather. This year will see many wonderful new Tucker Gunleather products. Be sure to sign up for our newsletter on the front page of our website.
