AdvanSix’s PIR and PCR grades resins and films today announced a new nylon offering with 100% post-consumer recycled content, providing a circular solution to help customers meet sustainability goals and create a variety of products, from home office furniture and durable packaging to fast, fuel-efficient cars.
AdvanSix post-industrial (PIR) and post-consumer recycled (PCR) grades Aegis Resins and post-industrial Capran BOPA Films use 100% recycled content to produce nylon 6 products that are every bit as processable, formable, and durable as virgin nylon. They offer the same excellent physical and mechanical properties as conventional nylon products.
“There is a growing demand among plastic and film manufacturers for a reliable, cost- effective supply of 100% recycled materials,” says Kori Anderson, Vice President and GM, Nylon Solutions at AdvanSix. “We are pleased to bring products to the market with the potential to help customers reduce carbon footprint, lessen the impact on landfills, and provide a drop-in solution to support a wide variety of end markets and applications that touch people’s lives in a more sustainable way.”
As one of the top five fully integrated manufacturers of Nylon 6 globally and one of the largest single-site global producers of caprolactam, AdvanSix offers industry-leading quality, consistency and reliability of supply. Designed to meet customer needs with ease, PIR/PCR usage does not require any change in product processability, avoiding tradeoffs with alternative recycled sources and improving carbon footprint without costly re-qualifications or sacrificing performance.
Certified by an independent third-party organization for recycled content using a mass balance and allocation approach, AdvanSix’s PCR and PIR is confirmed recycled content that meets food contact materials regulations.
