The universe of expanded materials also continues its research work with a view to environmental sustainability.
Among the most interesting, Ocean® stands out for the new opportunities it is able to offer, and our Group, thanks to the partnership with Next Design Innovation, has developed the technique to work it to the best.
Ocean® is an expanded polypropylene composed of 15% polypropylene recovered from the oceans.
The problem of the oceans, caused above all by incorrect behavior of the end user and not by plastic in itself, is certainly the presence of non-organic material in the water.
We at The IES Group, once recovered we treat it and put it back in circulation, according to those circular economy objectives that we have set and intend to achieve.
Characteristics and strengths
- It is equal to normal polypropylene in terms of physical behavior;
- ecological and versatile;
- has a lower cost than its yellow or orange colored form;
- has a very pleasant blue color, in line with its origin and its name.
- Ocean®, fantastic material: where to find it?
Ocean®, fabolous material: where to find it?
The interest for Ocean® is constantly increasing, also for its excellent properties that make it applicable in various contexts. Many requests have been received, also due to our capability to mold different materials. In addition, thanks to the uniqueness of the presses, we are able to satisfy every need.
Thanks to the currently limited availability and the constantly increasing prices of plastics, the timing of the requests is likely to increase.
