Our Sustainability

As industries seek to reduce their impact in the global goals towards net zero emissions targets, we support manufacturers with intelligent materials. Whether they be recycled, made from sustainable resources, are reusable or provide extended life to reduce landfill, we are constantly expanding our portfolio with innovative and sustainable materials

REDUCE

REDUCE

Our specialty films and engineered foams support renewable energy industries such as Electric vehicles and PV Solar farms.
The constant evolution of science and technology is enabling the development of new materials that not only provide improved performance but also support product manufacturers to reduce, reuse and recycle as the world embraces sustainability. We keep abreast of these innovations and can guide manufacturers with information and materials to manage their impact and meet their sustainability goals.

RECYCLE

RECYCLE

Our textile range include products made from recycled plastics, recycled fibres and plant based bamboo. Our engineered leather is made from traditionally scrapped parts of the hide and produced without toxic chemicals used in the traditional tanning process. We have innovative high performance foams with biobased content such as soy, sugar cane and other non petrochemical based polyols.

REUSE

REUSE

We offer highly durable materials to the rollingstock manufacturing industry which dramatically reduces normal landfill associated with the refurbishment of trains and trams. Our unique composite flooring for rollingstock never needs to be replaced throughout the life time of the train and our No Flame Seat cushions® offer double the life of normal seating foams. In the Printing industry we offer water washable photopolymer and magnesium plates which removes the use and disposing of harmful solvents.

Let's start something great together

The right materials with the right technical know-how
