KEBALLOY ECO R-PET E401
KEBALLOY ECO R-PET E401 is a recycled, medium viscosity PET grade (polyethylene terephthalate) approved for direct food applications. The material is supplied as crystallized granules. This grade is produced from 100% post-consumer bottle flakes.
PET - KEBALLOY ECO
The name KEBALLOY ECO stands for a product range of engineering plastics and high-performance compounds based on post-consumer or post-industrial recyclate. KEBALLOY ECO compounds enable significant CO2 savings compared to virgin materials and meet the highest requirements in terms of product properties and their uniformity from batch to batch. KEBALLOY ECO compounds also enable customer- or application-specific microcycles of engineering plastic parts and are thus a valuable contribution on the way to a circular plastics economy.
