Published on 2018-12-13. Author : SpecialChem

GreenMantra Technologies has introduced its Ceranovus additives for wood plastic composite (WPC) lumber at the Deck Expo 2018.

Formulation and Operational Cost Savings

GreenMantra has introduced its Ceranovus additives for wood plastic composite

Ceranovus A-Series polymer additives can provide WPC manufacturers with both formulation and operational cost savings. And since they are made from 100 percent recycled plastics, Ceranovus additives increase the recycled content of a finished product, enhancing its sustainability profile.

We are excited to offer the benefits of these additives to the WPC market,” said Carla Toth, senior vice president, sales and marketing for GreenMantra. “Industry trials combined with third-party testing validate that Ceranovus polymer additives generate value for WPC manufacturers who are seeking to lower overall formulation costs and improve operational efficiency.”

Additives with Multiple Characteristics

In WPC lumber, Ceranovus polyethylene and polypropylene polymer additives can:
  • Increase strength Modulus of Rupture (MOR) and stiffness Modulus of Elasticity (MOE)
  • Enabling formulation flexibility and broader feedstock selection to offset virgin plastics
  • Increasing the recycled content and sustainability profile of finished products

Made with 100% Recycled Post-consumer Plastics

GreenMantra’s Ceranovus polymer additives are also used in polymer-modified asphalt roofing and roads as well as in rubber compounding, polymer processing and adhesive applications.

The company has received numerous awards for its innovative technology, including an R&D100 Gold Award for Green Technology. Its Ceranovus A-Series waxes and polymer additives are certified by SCS Global Services as being made with 100 percent recycled post-consumer plastics.
