Avient Corporation announced the expansion of its reSound REC Recycled Content Thermoplastic Elastomers portfolio to include more sustainable grades containing up to 45% post-consumer recycled (PCR) content.

 

The new formulations are Avient’s first PCR-containing TPE technology developed primarily for overmolding polycarbonate (PC), acrylic butadiene styrene (ABS), and PC/ABS blends in applications from consumer electronics, cosmetics packaging, and personal care items to power tools and toys.

 

The new PCR-containing reSound REC formulations are initially available in three grades with up to 45% PCR content from recycled lubricant oil and food packaging, covering a hardness range from 40 to 60 Shore A.

Avient's new reSound REC TPEs with recycled content are applicable for consumer electronics.


They offer a performance property profile, including adhesion, surface quality, and soft touch feel, comparable to prime TPEs without recycled content. At the same time, PCR-containing formulations can help manufacturers, designers, and brand owners close the gap on ambitious sustainability targets by lowering carbon emissions.

 

“Consumers are more conscious of sustainability, and brand owners are seeking new material solutions to support their circular economy goals,” said Matt Mitchell, director of global marketing of Specialty Engineered Materials at Avient. “Our new reSound REC family of PCR-based TPEs addresses these challenges and reflects Avient’s firm commitment to sustainability and accelerating the transition towards circularity.”

 

These materials are currently manufactured in Asia and are available globally. Potential applications include various grips for computer mice, razors, hair brushes, phone cases, speaker gaskets, and tools and power equipment.
