Plastic coated paper waste material
The specially developed process enables raw materials to be processed from used beverage cartons to produce the material Tectan®. For granulate recovery, the paper and cardboard scraps are cut up and dried. Depending on the intended use, these are supplemented with existing polyethylene. Tectan® is used by injection molding in sleeve plugs and edge protectors, among other things. The use of paper fibers as secondary materials also enables fossil fuels to be saved. Another advantage: 100% recyclable and can thus be returned to the recycling loop without any problems.
