How to 
select
soustainable
plastic

Every brand (including cosmetics, cars, fashion sport equipment, furniture and design) to name a few, is running fast to find new materials for their goods

Selecting sustainable polymers is challenging.
every industry has their specific needs while external
demands, regulations, customer needs and cost pressure might seem cintraddictory.

In addition, limited access to resources and testing facilities often slows down progress

PLASTIC SELECTION
AS A WORLD OF PROBLEMS AND MISUNDERSTANDINGS

The headlines today are filled with stories about microplastics saturating the Ocean, contaminating sea life and consequently being ingested by our own children

From this state of affairs, speed becomes essential in finding a viable solution, but only when combined with systematic understanding and commercial capability to drive change

Some companies belive is enough to re-think the essential technical performance of materials and products - avoiding "over-specification", and instead search for a better fit from mass produced polymers.

Other companies may select a tailored materials
solution, such as customized polymer blends or plastic compounds.

What is required to move faster?

The goal is to find materials that fulfil the required technical performance and improve sustainability in accordance with the company's strategy, ranging from carbon or water footprint, recycled content, bio-based content to maximized product durability

POLIPLASTIC has the Solution

Stage 6

the circle is closed,the customer starts production and sets
aside the scraps to restart the cycle.

Stage 5

OUTPUT: ready to use compound

Stage 1

INPUT: Customer selected scraps

Stage 2

Productuion of semi-finished compounds

Stage 3

Production of a ready to use compound following customer needs (colours, additives, fillers, viscosity)

Stage 4

laboratory test andcertificate of analysis
