reSound™ REC Recycled Content Thermoplastic Elastomers

Recycled Content TPEs for Enhanced Sustainability  

reSound™ REC post-industrial recycle (PIR) and post-consumer recycle (PCR) TPEs help brand owners create sustainable end-user products, with formulations utilizing 9-83% recycled content. PCR grades are formulated with different types of recycled content: ocean plastics; recycled food packaging from a variety of sources (including content that received a No Objection Letter from the U.S. FDA); or recycled polyvinyl butyral (PVB) from windshields and laminated building glass supplied by Shark Solutions.

Formulated for consumer and transportation markets, these grades can be used in applications such as personal care products, automotive, lawn and garden tools, outdoor goods, office supplies, footwear and houseware durables.
