Change Perspective:
Give Plastic Another Chance with Restylon

Today, the communication of plastic material has taken on a negative connotation due to the quality of the material and its impact on the environment. However, in Maspi we intend to get another message through. As is quite often the case for other applications, it is not the object itself that creates pollution but its use. Like other materials, in fact, plastic does not pollute more and with the right attention can be reused in processes to give second-life materials a new use.

However, recycled materials cannot always be reused for the production of new items, especially in sectors with a high aesthetic impact. Nevertheless, in Maspi the binomial "recycled = poor quality" is permanently broken thanks to RESTYLON Co-injection technology.

The innovative RESTYLON Co-injection or Mono sandwich system combines two compatible polymeric plastics, using at least 30 percent recycled material without compromising the fine aesthetics of the item. Moving beyond traditional molding, RESTYLON allows a strong reduction in CO2 emissions and the production of items with high thickness that can withstand higher pressures while avoiding possible deformation of the plastic object.

Co-injection

This technology divides the material into two different injection syringes, which make-up the Core and the Skin of the product, which are injected one at a time through the same injection point.
The Core is composed of the recycled material that will form the heart of the product, while the Skin, usually composed of the virgin material, will form the external coating. In this particular process the two materials are joined directly in the mould. The great versatility of Co-Injection is the ability to measure the insertion of the two materials and to control the perfect mixture for a perfect article without any imperfections. During this system the two materials are mixed only in the mould.

Mono-sandwich

The Mono Sandwich technology obtains, as for Co-injection, excellent environmental and shape benefits, but differs in the production process of the articles.
In Mono Sandwich, in fact, the two materials undergo a similar division into Core and Skin, but are injected into the mould simultaneously and no longer one at a time.
Similarly, also in this technology it is possible to use one or both materials in recycled obtaining the same environmental results.
In this transformation, the two materials are mixed in the injection cylinder of the press.
