Advansix introduces resins and films with 100% recycled materials

News 24.09.2021

Parsipanny-based AdvanSix (NYSE: ASIX) announced that it has added 100% post-industrial recycled (PIR) grades to its industry-leading portfolio of Aegis® PA6 Resins and Capran® Biaxally Oriented Polyamide (BOPA) films. The new products, which are the first of their kind for the company, offer customers a way to address their sustainability goals by incorporating materials built on recycled monomers reclaimed from waste streams into their end products without compromises or trade-offs on performance.

The 100% PIR grades from AdvanSix have the same processability as their AdvanSix standard-grade counterparts and are food-contact-compliant, making them ideal in applications with rigorous performance requirements or that are challenging to recycle. Examples include food and medical packaging requiring Food and Drug Administration approval, bag-in-box beverage
packaging and other food-contact-compliant applications, along with light-colored carpets and other products with stringent specifications for color or odor contamination. Incorporating PIR solutions from AdvanSix into the manufacturing process is straightforward, as there is no need for customers to requalify these new grades.

All PIR grades have been certified by SCS Global Services, and AdvanSix continues to evaluate the products’ environmental benefits through ongoing Life Cycle Analysis. Following nylon polymerization, AdvanSix recovers unreacted caprolactam from waste streams and recycles it back into the nylon manufacturing process. Using an industry-accepted mass balance method,
the recycled material is allocated into 100% PIR-grade Aegis® resins and Capran® BOPA films.
