RadiciGroup launches its new Renycle® range, engineering polymers originating from pre- and post-consumer recyclate with high environmental performance
Four keywords – safety, reliability, quality and traceability – represent the new sustainable offering from RadiciGroup High Performance Polymers. A specialist in the manufacture of engineering polymers from recovered materials for over 40 years, the RadiciGroup business area is launching its new brand Renycle® at Fakuma (Stand A1-1106). The Renycle® PA6 and PA66 products include a variable percentage of post-industrial and post-consumer recycled polymers, which are the result of careful selection from incoming raw materials and advanced mechanical characterization.
“At RadiciGroup every production scrap has always become a new resource,” Erico Spini, global marketing manager of RadiciGroup High Performance Polymers, stressed. “We have years of experience in sorting the diverse materials and selecting the best road forward to give them a second life. We have developed a production process that precisely monitors the selection and treatment of raw materials to optimize the characteristics and variability of the end products. Moreover, in recent years, we have taken part in circular economy projects, such as CarE-Service, which has allowed us to acquire skills in post-consumer recycling, as well.”
“This is why we are launching Renycle® at Fakuma,” Mr. Spini continued. “This brand signifies our sustainability offering, in terms of both the characterization of products from the viewpoint of the properties (mechanical, chemical, physical, electrical, etc.) typically required for construction materials and the reduction of environmental impact compared to products made of 100% virgin polymer (LCA comparison).
The Renycle® brand stands for the readiness of RadiciGroup High Performance Polymers (HPP) to undertake new challenges linked to sustainability, while, at the same time, ensuring product safety and traceability, as required by more and more stringent laws and regulations.
