Acrylic goes green

Altuglas International (Colombes, France) is introducing a new acrylic (PMMA) grade, Altuglas Rnew, that contains 20% carbon derived directly from biomass. It offers properties comparable to those of conventional grades produced entirely from fossil fuels. The material can be used by processors wanting to emphasize their “green” awareness. Altuglas sees markets for the new polymer grade in cosmetics packaging, electronics products, and some household appliances. It has good transparency but also can be processed into opaque sheet.
