EcoAllene® is a product of recycling, yet it boasts the most important properties of a raw product: consistency and uniformity of supply.
virgin plastic is made from crude oil, whereas the source of EcoAllene® is waste* * from food packaging, which is consistent over time in terms of composition and characteristics.
This allows EcoAllene® to be consistent and repeatable over time and in all lots that we supply to our clients, allowing them to work with it the same as they would a raw material, with consistent parameters of transformation.
This avoids the troublesome continual adjustments typical of “recycled materials” from heterogeneous plastics; furthermore, it means that, unlike plastic, the price of EcoAllene® is not subject to the volatile price of oil.
EcoAllene® satisfies the following common requirements in the plastic sector, especially when compared to other raw or recycled materials:
- a 100% green product.
- a huge and constant availability of source material: in fact, the presence of polylaminates inside food packaging is guaranteed due to regulations concerning protection of content both from contamination and UV radiation;
- completely recyclable: it comes from a product with low technical content, and so it is always treated, which means products made with EcoAllene® can be recycled in the same way as the source material;
- ease of process: the consistency of the source material of EcoAllene® is a guarantee of the repeatability of its process parameters over time and from lot to lot.
