Kraton Unveils Reprocessable Additive for Plastics Upcycling

Published on 2020-04-28. Author : SpecialChem

TAGS:  Additives for Packaging    

Kraton Corporation has announced the launch of its new CirKular+™ product line, which enables a holistic approach to the plastic product life cycle and the circular economy.

Product Offers Multi-resin Compatibilization

CirKular+™ products offer versatile multi-resin compatibilization and performance enhancement in a wide range of applications like packaging. They include PCR and industrial plastic recycling streams, bioplastics and flexible product design using a combination of virgin and recycled plastic materials.

CirKular+™ fully reprocessable additives are a cost-efficient solution that allows for reuse of recycled plastic through upcycling of PCR and industrial waste streams, including typically non-compatible materials and difficult-to-recycle engineering polymers.

PCR polyolefin modification with CirKular+™ additives results in enhanced mechanical properties and design recyclability, enabling a mono-material approach to substitute a combination of polyolefins used with other less recyclable resins.
