ELIX Polymers just launched a new line of ABS products under the brand name Chemical Compliance (CC) for applications that include toys, cosmetic containers, and products that come into contact with food.

The aim of the new range is to satisfy the requirements of consumers increasingly concerned about the safety aspects of materials that day-to-day products are made from. Reinforced standards applied during production of CC grades will enable ELIX to offer additional guarantees on regulatory compliance during the lifetime of finished products.

The CC line comes with a package of extended services that will help OEMs carry out their product verification and stewardship processes. These services include the provision of documents indicating regulatory compliance for different national and international sectors, and the application to final parts of results from additional tests on the safety of the material in contact with food. ELIX will also conduct product quality and safety tests based on the requirements to which OEMs may be subject.

Grades have been formulated for individual applications, enabling customers to select them according to their specific needs. Injection moulding grades ELIX ABS P2H-CC and ELIX ABS P3H-CC, based on each requirement, are just two of many offerings in the new CC line. They are easy to process and have a high level of brightness as well as intense colours, backed up by a service that will facilitate the product stewardship tasks for the OEMs.

Single-dose coffee makers are an example of the type of application that ELIX is aiming at with the new CC grades. Launching a new machine onto the market requires a large number of tests to be carried out on component materials to guarantee compliance with laws on the safety of their use in contact with food. Such tests can take a considerable amount of time and resources to carry out, with possible effects on the course of development projects.

Ignacio Buezas, Business Development Manager of ELIX Polymers said: "This new package of food contact materials and services provides a level of compliance support above that generally available from materials suppliers, for clients who have a particular commitment to the safe use of their products and who require that materials exceed the standards required by law.”

With our new product line and consulting service, we take care of a large portion of the work involved in verifying and guaranteeing that not only our ABS materials, but also all the components present in our materials – pigments and additives for example – are compliant with the law.”

ELIX Polymers has a vast experience supplying materials to industries subject to strict safety of use regulations for plastic materials; these include medical devices, cosmetic containers, and the toy industry where the use of ABS has been traditionally high.

This innovative product line further increases ELIX Polymers' services portfolio, which already includes a wide range of specialities for the different segments of the plastics industry. “The combination of products and services together with our knowledge and experience has made the company unique and positions us on the market as one of the leaders in the manufacturing and sale of ABS and derived materials,” Buezas concluded.
