Post-consumer content resins

Feb. 2, 2010
New resins made with post-consumer polymers are available.

Post-consumer content (PCC) resins use between 1 and 100% recycled plastic and meet customers' color, conductivity, flame retardancy, structural, or wear requirements. PCC versions of nylon (PA), polycarbonate (PC), and polyethylene terephthalate (PET), as well as alloys of these resins are available. PCC resins can improve product scoring for environmental measurement tools such as EPEAT or LEED.
