Gabriel-Chemie Introduces Color Masterbatches Derived from Recycled Polypropylene

Published on 2019-05-17. Author : SpecialChem

gabriel-chemie-PCR-masterbatchesAs part of its sustainability initiative, the Gabriel-Chemie Group is activating several strategy programs. One of the first building blocks is the introduction of a color palette consisting of Post Consumer Recycled (PCR) polypropylene.

Large Variety of Colors for Different Customers

Gabriel-Chemie has been working for some time on the reduction of virgin materials, i.e. the native, fossil raw materials in plastic or masterbatch processing. With a first colorful masterbatch offer from Post Consumer Recycled Polypropylene, a lead in the market is achieved.

Suppliers make their products from post-consumer waste such as the yellow sack, which serves as the base material. The re-enactment of a large variety of colors is already possible. Lighter and effect colors, as well as, for example, the combination with laser marking additives, can be realized according to customer requirements.

Using PET and HDPE PCR as Carrier Base

The first concrete projects in the packaging area are in progress and the further development to use PET and HDPE PCR as a carrier base is progressing. Gabriel-Chemie is thus one of the very first direct contact persons for sustainable customer wishes in the recyclate color segment.

"With the PCR colors, we are making a big leap towards the future. The social responsibility of Gabriel-Chemie in the sense of sustainable business has increased enormously. This is also reflected in the embedding of CSR in our medium and long-term strategy, "explains Mark Hannah, Head of Corporate Marketing.
