The new polypropylene solutions are made from up to 70% post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials and have undergone ISO 14067 carbon footprint assessment certified by TÜV Rheinland.


The first solution contains 50% PCR material that reduces the carbon footprint by about 28% compared with virgin grades; it delivers unprecedented performance, processability and exceptional long-term heat resistance. This makes the product suitable for under-body shields, bumper brackets and structural parts in cars.

The second solution contains a blend of up to 70% PCR materials, which is specifically developed for producing wheel arches and other exterior components. This solution can achieve a 32% reduction in carbon footprint compared with virgin grades while striking a perfect balance between impact strength and stiffness.
