Improving products with innovative technology
Recycled doesn’t mean inferior quality--with the right technology and strategy.
That was the case with a client in the building and construction industry who gave us the task of developing a recycled material to replace their high cost virgin, high-impact polypropylene, a material normally produced by industry giants.
Besides developing a ‘no break’ product engineered to maintain high impact resistance, even at temperatures below freezing (-30C), the client also wanted the versatility to mold in multiple colors—typical recycling processes only produce black materials.
Success required a whole new set of processes. We invested in custom technology,and put on our lab goggles, running a series of tests to compare the properties of virgin materials and various recycled materials. We then developed a unique formula based on raw material sources.
The result? A superior product, for less cost that can also be molded in color.
