Molding Solutions, a strategic business unit within Barnes, and Ineos Styrolution, a global supplier in styrenics, announced that they want to develop a sustainable ABS solution that is to make molding biomaterials and sustainable plastics easier.

Molding Solutions and Inoes Styrolution want to bundle their expertise and technologies to make mechanically-recycled ABS solutions easier to process and achieve repeatable moulded product quality with Ineos Styrolution’s Terluran ECO MR-50/70 materials, in particular.

Yohann Bach, Product Director ABS Standard EMEA, Ineos Styrolution, says: “We are convinced that our Terluran ECO is the best mechanically-recycled ABS in the world. It offers identical properties to the respective native material. We are excited to offer it with a 50 percent recycling content (MR50) or with a 70 percent recycled content (MR70).”

Dr. Stefan Kruppa, Vice President of R&D for Molding Solutions, adds: “With our unique technology, we are able to expand our moulding capabilities of post-consumer recyclate to meet the required product quality. Our aim is to enable customers to achieve the best results in the injection moulding process with recycled ABS.”

Terluran ECO GP-22 grades were the first contribution from Ineos Styrolution to meet the Ineos pledge to incorporate at least 325 kt/year of recycled materials into its products. The two new grades, Terluran Eco GP-22 MR50 and Terluran Eco GP-22 MR70, contain 50 and 70 percent of recycled post-consumer waste electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE), respectively. Both grades will be available in black. Product properties of the grades match the mechanical property profile of their non-recycled counterparts.
