Recycled Plastic in injection molding

Giving materials a second life is a prerogative at Maspi. For this reason, every item produced contains at least 30 percent recycled plastic material

A Recycled Plastic Injection Molding Company

Maspi aspires to be among the best plastic molding companies in the use of recycled plastic materials. Reuse of discarded waste elements is an unavoidable driver for the company, this in fact generates value not only from an economic point of view but also in terms of sustainability. 

Maspi reuses in each of its products, thanks to Restylon co-injection technology, certified post-industrial recycled material that allows to drastically cut CO2 emissions by one-third and to avoid having to dispose of waste from the production area, which is instead stored and reinserted when needed. 

Each recycled material in order to be properly reused must be carefully separated and identified exactly so that it can later be properly reprocessed.

Post-Industrial Recycled Material

Post-industrialrecycled materials are the residual and discarded materials from the first production of a plastic items in companies. They are the most widely used materials in the plastic recycled sector because of their greater availability and facility of certification. At Maspi, each plastic material is carefully certified to be reused in a second production. This type of recyclate is the most used by Maspi for the Restylon Co-injection production.

Post Consumer Recycled Materials

Post-consumer recycled plastics are items used and consumed by humans such as, plastic bottles, tetrapak, or food tubs. Even these can be reused for the production of new items as long as one is able to properly separate the different types of plastic. In the furniture industry, this type of recyclate has not yet been used frequently, so Maspi is engaging in the study and analysis of a new polymer from tetrapak recycling in order to create new more sustainable designs.
