Skyrocketing demand for recycled material solutions that support the plastics circular economy is also increasing the need for innovation across the automotive industry.
This presentation will showcase how Avient and Shark Solutions combined material science expertise with post-consumer recycled (PCR) products to deliver reSound™ REC recycled-content thermoplastic elastomer (TPE), a material that supports OEMs’ sustainability goals and advances the circular economy.
reSound™ REC TPEs are formulated with polyvinyl butyral (PVB), reclaimed from broken automotive windshields and laminated architectural glass. These new PCR grades offer similar performance properties to traditional TPEs and are suitable for applications that require grip and durability. Their performance properties also fit automotive applications that could benefit from vibration damping, such as doormats, door seals, and glove boxes.
