The only catch is that right now in the market, plastic is so cheap because there is such a high demand for it. Hemp is an all rebound better alternative, but the market is such a niche for hemp made products that the price is very high. Over time, hemp will hopefully catch more eyes and become cheaper than traditional plastics. Hemp also holds up to extreme temperatures as well. Because it is such an excellent insulator, it can handle the heat. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp MarcLouis 0 Questions 187 Answers 0 Best Answers 376 Points View Profile MarcLouis 2020-08-06T05:58:46-04:00Added an answer on August 6, 2020 at 5:58 am Hemp plastic does hold up well in extreme temperatures because hemp plastic is heat resistant. Hemp fibers start to degrade at around 150-200 degrees Celsius, the melting point for regular plastic is 100-120 degrees Celsius. Hemp plastic is entirely non-toxic and biodegradable, making it far more earth-friendly than your standard polyurethane plastics. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Jade 0 Questions 69 Answers 0 Best Answers 139 Points View Profile Jade 2020-07-27T11:51:04-04:00Added an answer on July 27, 2020 at 11:51 am Hemp plastic is biodegraded, but it is also five times stiffer and 2 ½ times more durable than regular plastics. Hemp plastic is heat resistant, so it’s excellent for use in the kitchen. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Hempmaster3000 0 Questions 214 Answers 0 Best Answers 461 Points View Profile Hempmaster3000 2020-05-08T10:37:26-04:00Added an answer on May 8, 2020 at 10:37 am From everything I have read seems to make me think it would. There appears to be an industry standard of up to 10% difference (weaker) than standard plastic in the most extreme temperatures. 0 Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login to add an answer.
