KEBALLOY ECO FE 191104 R-PET (Development product*)
KEBALLOY ECO FE 191104 R-PET is a 50% glass fiber reinforced PET compound. The PET base polymer is made from 100% post-consumer recycled PET bottles. KEBALLOY ECO FE 191104 R-PET is thus a sustainable alternative to other glass fiber reinforced structural materials, e.g. as a metal substitute.
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.
