ELIX ABS E-LOOP H801 MR

Description

Mechanical recycling represents an essential part of the circular economy, which transforms plastic waste into raw materials that are reintroduced into the manufacturing process to create new mechanically recycled plastic materials.

As another milestone in its circular economy strategy, ELIX Polymers has developed the mechanically recycled ABS E-LOOP H801 MR grade, an ABS modified with recycled PC. This grade has been extensively characterized, showing equivalent properties to the prime material ELIX ABS H801, which is well-known in the automotive industry for high requirement interior and exterior applications, fulfilling several OEM standards. This is in line with ELIX ́s commitment to provide innovative up-cycling solutions that preserve the functionality of end customer applications in our ABS markets.

E-LOOP H801 MR offers a more sustainable solution which replaces fossil-based resources with circular and sustainable feedstocks, in addition to reducing the carbon footprint of the product.


SOLUTIONS

Typical Application

Automotive interior parts (dark colours): Door components, instrument panel parts.
Automotive exterior parts: Front grills, exterior painted trim, pillars, spoilers.

R+D concept

Our project aim is to offer top-of-the-line sustainable solutions in our markets, promoting the transformation of the value chain towards a circular economy model.

Market Field

Automotive.

Features

  • ABS/PC material with recycled content
  • Technical datasheet available, showing equivalent properties to the H801 virgin material
