Steagreen

Steagreen® A cost-effective solution for restoring mechanical properties to recycled plastics

  • Enhanced mechanical properties
  • Improved dimensional stability
  • Infinitely recyclable in the end product

Steagreen® is a new, lamellar, engineered talc grade, designed specifically to restore mechanical properties to recycled plastics enabling their use in highly demanding applications.

Increased stiffness

Used in recycled PP, a compound containing 20% loading of Steagreen® talc will match the performance of a non-recycled, talc-filled PP compound and can therefore be used for high performance applications.

Improved dimensional stability

Steagreen® talc-reinforced recycled PP demonstrates a 30% improvement in dimensional stability compared to recycled PP not containing talc, enabling parts to be used for zero-gap automotive applications.

Enhanced heat resistance

An improvement of nearly +7°C can be achieved with Steagreen® talc at 20% loading enabling compounds to be used for applications such as under-the-hood automotive parts.

Infinitely recyclable

Steagreen® talc is chemically inert and thermally stable and isn’t affected by multi-pass extrusion. It can be recycled indefinitely without losing its initial properties.

Cost-effective solution

Steagreen® performance is very similar to that achieved with a very fine talc, but at a lower cost.
