Certified Recyclates for High-Quality Applications
Plastics distributor and compounder WIS Kunststoffe is continuously expanding its product range. At Fakuma 2023, the company is now presenting new certified recyclates from up to 100 percent post-consumer collections with various approvals for demanding applications.
At Fakuma 2023, WIS Kunststoffe will present its capabilities as a compounder and distributor. WIS Kunststoffe places particular emphasis on its high-quality regranulates. WIS offers recyclates from both post-consumer sources (PCR) and post-industrial sources (PIR). Daniel Römhild, authorized signatory at WIS Kunststoffe, explains, “We have secured long-term access to recycling streams and, because we have our own production facilities, we can respond very individually to our customers’ requirements. In our fully equipped in-house laboratory, we can constantly monitor the quality of our products at the highest level,” explains Daniel Römhild. WIS Kunststoffe offers compounds with different recycled content optimized for specific applications. For example, recyclates with high color purity can be offered in white or natural colors, which have approval for the production of cosmetic packaging or toys.
Broad portfolio of application-specific recyclates
At Fakuma, WIS Kunststoffe will show odor-optimized polypropylene and polyethylene recyclates. These are suitable for sensitive applications, such as toys or household applications. For applications in the automotive industry, special “high-tech” recyclates (PCR) have been developed that meet the high standards of the industry and already fulfill the criteria of the upcoming regulations in this area. Reinforced variants (e.g. with glass fibers, glass beads, or talc) are also offered for exterior components, while odor-optimized grades with low emission values are available for interiors. Also new are polyamides with high heat resistance for technical applications, especially in the engine compartment. For the packaging industry, WIS now offers recycled polystyrenes (rPS).
The company from Breitungen has invested substancially in its technical equipment. Among other things, new extruders, testing equipment as well as modern recycling technology were purchased. “Only with state-of-the-art machines can we meet the high state of the art is it possible to meet our customers’ high quality demands,” Daniel Römhild knows.
Certified recyclates – safe to use
Daniel Römhild explains: “The demand for recyclates with high purity is constantly increasing and this trend will continue. and this trend will continue. More and more consumers and companies are attaching importance to sustainability and resource conservation in combination with a low low carbon footprint. We want to take account of this development and our certified PCR recyclates, we are opening up new application markets for our customers. We are particularly proud of the certification of our recycling plant according to EuCertPlast. This officially confirms that WIS Kunststoffe handles post-consumer plastics according to best practices and with respect for the environment.
EuCertPlast certification is the prerequisite for ensuring, for our recyclates to be used in the production of products bearing the “Blauer Engel” an important argument for environmentally conscious plastics processors.” In addition, the company is currently planning the acquisition of a larger photovoltaic system with the aim of achieving CO2-neutral production.
High purity – great safety
All materials from WIS Kunststoffe have application-specific approvals. These include European food approvals according to (EU) No. 10/2011 , FDA, leave-on & rinse-off for cosmetics (EC) No. 1223/2009 and EN-71 for the toy industry. All common conformities can be confirmed, such as REACH, California Proposition 65, SVHC, etc. Furthermore, automotive applications can be realized according to European as well as global standards. Individual solutions for applications from the electronics sector (some with flame retardancy) can also be implemented, always tailored to the requirements of the respective project.
Daniel Römhild says: “We are looking forward to discussions and a common exchange about exciting projects and applications. Visit us at our new trade fair stand, which is entirely dedicated to the topic of the circular economy and awaits you with numerous concrete application examples. Let’s find out together how uncomplicated the use of high-quality recyclates can be.” WIS Kunststoffe GmbH, Hall B4, Booth B4-4307
