SÜDPACK Compound PP R KR 20T 001
What is it?
This composite is made of more than 70% post-consumer recycled polypropylene (PP) and 20% mineral filling (talc). The compound is suitable for injection moulding and extrusion. The high-quality, transparent PP recyclate, used as compound base material, offers a broad color spectrum, including light shades and white, which is uncommon among other post-consumer recycled material streams. Compounds from SÜDPACK can be made available ISCC Plus-certified. They can be tailor-made to meet individual customer requirements, also available based on post-industrial recyclates and biomaterials.

The PCR PP comes from a verified origin – B2B high quality packaging – ensuring the consistency and quality of the recycled feedstock. The mechanical properties of the PCR PP are very close to those of corresponding virgin grades. In addition, the material's scratch resistance has been optimized compared with PP without additives.
Look and feel
The recycled base polymer is naturally transparent. Therefore, the mineral-filled compound can be color-matched to a wide variety of options, even white.
The material can be used as a drop-in solution replacing fossil-based PP compound solutions. The use of recycled material saves resources and makes a direct contribution to saving CO2 emissions. With the presented compound, a CO2 savings of more than 60% can be achieved compared with virgin PP.
Talc-reinforced polypropylene is more dimensionally stable, resilient, and heat-resistant than PP resin without additives. Applications include housings for consumer electronics, home and garden appliances, and auto parts.
Why we chose this material
We appreciate that the company cooperates with the medical industry, utilizing the high volumes of B2B high quality packaging as the feedstock for this upcycled material.
Why you should consider this material
You are looking for a sustainable, high-quality PP.
Good scratch resistance and colourability are needed.
It would help if you had higher heat resistance than standard PP provides.
