Teknor Apex introduces a new series of TPEs, the Monprene RX CP-15100 series, containing 25 to 35% recycled content. Its added value helps brands achieve their sustainability goals.


The Monprene RX CP-15100 series, formulated with PCR content, promotes a circular economy while decreasing reliance on virgin fossil-based resources and energy. This offering allows brands to meet consumer and regulatory demands for recycled content within their products.


These TPEs are available globally and manufactured around the world with locally sourced raw materials procured to exacting specifications - turning local waste into resource. Unlike competitive TPEs with recycled content, available in black only, these materials are delivered in a consistent light, natural color, similar to their prime offsets.


Teknor Apex announces Monprene TPEs that contain 25-35% recycled content.

The Monprene RX CP-15100 series is available in standard grades from 55 to 80 Shore A, and can also be tailored for a customer’s specific requirements. These grades are designed for injection molding applications, including overmolding onto polypropylene.

These materials perform and processes like prime TPE and are suitable for personal care products, lawn & garden tools, writing instruments, appliances, sporting goods and dunnage. The PCR content is sourced from waste diverted from households, or commercial, industrial and institutional facilities. The use of PCR content contributes toward a circular economy and creates demand for consumer recycling programs.


Not only does Monprene RX reduce plastic waste by incorporating it into the compound, but products made from it are still fully recyclable at the end of the product's life.


Monprene RX CP-15100 Series TPEs are manufactured according to the standards of ISO-9001 and ISO 14001 in the USA, Singapore and Germany, with strict formulation control and traceability.


“This introduction represents the first of several sustainable product launches slated for this year – that include other types of recycled content, bio-based raw materials, and carbon negative additives. We are actively collaborating with various partners in the supply chain, with continued growth in our portfolio,” told Jonathan Plisco, New Business Development Manager at Teknor Apex.
