BRANTFORD, Ontario, May 7, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- GreenMantra Technologies, a rapidly growing clean technology company that produces specialty polymer additives from recycled plastics, will showcase its CERANOVUS® polypropylene and polyethylene additives at the 2019 Compounding World Expo, May 8-9 in Cleveland, Ohio.
These polyethylene and polypropylene polymer additives are derived from 100 percent post-consumer and post-industrial recycled plastics and are specifically designed to create value for industrial plastic processing and polymer compounding applications. CERANOVUS additives enhance polymer properties, lower formulation costs and improve processing throughput while contributing to a more circular economy for plastics, said Carla Toth, senior vice president, sales and marketing for GreenMantra.
"Our polymer additives deliver a unique combination of improved physical properties and operational advantages while enabling formulation flexibility to utilize a broader range of feedstocks. These benefits translate to formulation cost savings and enhance sustainability for plastic processing and compounding applications," Toth said.
When compounded at a 2 percent loading level with a general-purpose polypropylene polymer, CERANOVUS polypropylene additives enable:
- 18% increase in IZOD impact strength
- 4% improvement in elongation at yield
- 9% reduction in extruder back pressure
- Improved flexural modulus and melt flow rate.
At a 2 percent loading with post-consumer recycle (PCR) HDPE resin, CERANOVUS polyethylene additives can deliver:
- 50+ % increase in melt flow rate
- 20% improvement in elongation at yield
- 12 % increase in IZOD impact strength
- 27 % increase in extruder throughput
- 20 % reduction in energy requirements
"Our CERANOVUS additives represent a unique combination of technology and sustainability," Toth said. "By upcycling recycled plastics into new performance-enhancing polymer additives, GreenMantra brings value to our customers and enables a more circular economy where plastics are beneficially and fully reused."
GreenMantra's sales and technical team will be in Booth A641 at the Compounding World Expo.
