Mechanically recycled Novodur ECO MR
Like its non-ECO counterpart, the new Novodur ECO MR P2H-AT is a general purpose ABS grade providing high flowability, good stiffness and high gloss. The material is available with a 30%, 50% or 70% post-consumer mechanically recycled content (“PCR”). The product comes in various colours or in black and offers a PCF saving of up to 57%. A product for self-colouring is available as well.
Novodur ECO MR P2H-AT is currently under evaluation by various customers to become a material of choice for various household appliances.
Mass balance based bio-circular Novodur ECO B
With Novodur ECO P2MC B50 and Novodur ECO HD M203 FC B50, INEOS Styrolution offers two grades with 50% contribution of bio-attributed content. Both grades are available in various colours and as an NR (natural) option. PCF savings are up to -71%.
Novodur ECO P2MC B50 has been designed specifically for electroplating making it a material of choice for various sanitary and automotive appliances. Novodur ECO HD M203 FC B50 is an attractive offering also suitable for the medical industry.
Mechanically recycled Novodur ECO High Heat MR
The Novodur High Heat (HH) family of products includes all ABS products modified to allow thermally stressed components to meet stringent stability requirements. Today, three sustainable grades are introduced in this product group: Novodur ECO HH-106 MR30, Novodur ECO H605 MR30 and Novodur ECO H801 MR40. PCF saving is up to -28% and the recycled content is 30% and 40%, respectively.
The products, available in black, are targeting the automotive industry, but may be of interest in other industries as well.
