- story by MaterialDistrict
Positive Plastics aims to convey a more accepting outlook on plastics to designers, engineers, and product managers. It is an invaluable tool for materials understanding and communication between non-technical and technical team members. This curated kit is a sample collection of various innovative, commercially available polymers, all with a reduced footprint compared to virgin polymers alternatives. The kit includes post-consumer recyclates (PCR), post-industrial recyclates (PIR), mass balanced grades, bio-based grades, and bio-composites. All grades are suitable for injection moulding to produce high quality products, such as consumer electronics, home appliances, sports goods, automotive interiors, accessories, etc.. Positive Plastics will continuously expand the kit as new responsible polymers reach the market.
