The Versalis Revive® PE products are low- and high-density polyethylene-based compounds containing up to 75% post-consumer plastic (depending on the grade) mainly from the recycling of packaging from domestic and urban post-consumer waste collection, and/or from trade and industry supply chains.
These products guarantee performances capable of meet the requirements of multiple applications, in particular in the agricultural sector for drip irrigation, in the packaging sector even for small containers such as up to 5 litres, and are also suitable for film applications such as sacks for industrial products or for mineral water.
These products have been co-developed by Versalis R&D Center of Mantua and Montello spa, a leading company in Europe in the plastic waste recovery and recycling technologies, where the product range is produced.
Versalis Revive® is being expanded with new products that R&D has been developing.
The portfolio is divided as follows:
- COM 75 LF1 H: LLDPE/LDPE-based compound containing 75% post-consumer plastic from trade and industry, suitable for processing with blown film technology for the production of films for various secondary or tertiary packaging uses, where optical properties are required (e.g. shrink film, bags, caps, silage film)
- COM 75 HF2: HDPE-based compound containing 75% post-consumer plastic, suitable for processing by extrusion technology for the production of irrigation pipes and blown film for the production of various films for industrial product packaging. COM75HF2 is also suitable for use with blow-moulding technology for the production of canisters for industrial and household chemical products, giving it a good stress-cracking value
- COM 75 HM1: HDPE-based compound containing 75% post-consumer plastic, suitable for processing with blow-moulding technology for the production of industrial containers of various types. It provides a good compromise between stress cracking resistance and high modulus, which imparts high strength in vertical stacking of artefacts
- 100 LF S: LDPE/LLDPE-based compound containing 100% post-consumer plastics from municipal waste sorted by neutral colour. Suitable for processing with blown-film and extrusion technology, it is suitable for the production of films for secondary or tertiary industrial packaging where neutral colour is particularly required (e.g. shrink film, caps, industrial bags)
