Albis is now producing Altech Prime and Altech ECO (Near-to-Prime Recycled Compounds) at the Duncan plant, which opened in October 2017. Altech ECO compounds meet the growing demand for recycled plastics, which is spurred by the industry’s more limited use of fossil resources and environmentally conscious consumers. They are based on post-industrial feedstock and provide up to 100% recycled content for a range of applications.
At NPE2018, Albis also will highlight Alcom LDX HTC, light-diffusing copolyester-based compounds; Alcom TCD PA6 5060 FR 16089 and Alcom TCD PA6 5076 FR 15021 WT, which are thermally conductive and electrically insulating polyamide 6-based compounds; Alperform LD and LDX-Batch flexible and cost-effective solutions for light-diffusing coloring of polycarbonate and PMMA; and Alperform LB-Batch, a new masterbatch that enables flexible dosing.
“Our more than 50-year commitment to the U.S. market has been strengthened by the opening of our new plant in Duncan,” said Stefan Fuhlendorf, President and CEO of Albis Plastics Corp. “This enables us to offer our NAFTA-based customers local production using global specifications.”
