Elix Polymers Joins Styrenics Circular Solutions Industry Initiative
Newest member of SCS committed to recycling of styrenics into high-quality applications.
Spain’s Elix Polymers (U.S. office in Weston, Fla.) is the newest member of Styrenics Circular Solutions (SCS), the joint industry initiative to increase the circularity of styrenic polymers. A major European manufacturer of ABS, SAN and unique blends, joins SCS members Coexpan, Ineos Styrolution, Repsol, Total, Trinseo and Versalis.
Said president of SCS Nicolas Joly, President of SCS,“We are delighted that SCS continues to build its alliance along the value chain as we now extend a warm welcome to Elix Polymers, a leading ABS manufacturer. Our momentum is gathering pace as we kick off 2020 and look beyond to our further development and the scaling-up of innovative technologies to recycle styrenics back into high-quality applications, even for food contact.”
Added CEO of Elix Polymers David Castañeda, “As a manufacturer, offering a broad range of ABS material solutions across the healthcare, automotive, appliances and electronics industries, ELIX Polymers is fully committed to the SCS vision of harnessing the unique capacity of styrenics for recycling. Elix wants to be part of the transformation of our industry driving circularity for the styrenics value chain, and our SCS membership will be a cornerstone within the framework of our Circular Economy strategy.”
INJECTION MOLDING AT NPE: Molding Exhibits Show Off Cell Integration with Multiple Processes & Operations
If you’re interested in lightweight composites, IML, LSR, multi-shot, inmold assembly, barrier coinjection, micromolding, variotherm molding, foams, energy-saving presses, robots, hot runners, and tooling—they’re all here in force.
Conventional molding techniques are not effective with high-temperature materials. Molders need to be aware of certain conditions and parameters to handle problems sometimes posed by high-heat injection molding.
PolySource, for one, has been preparing for this with alternatives it offers. How big is this concern? Who’s working on solutions, including alternative offerings?
