Emerging Materials

PTI drives creation of emerging polymers, colorants

When you’ve worked with traditional polymers as long as Plastic Technologies, Inc. (PTI) has, you know their strengths and limitations.  That knowledge has provided the foundation for our involvement in creating or commercializing the next generation of materials and applications.

Biobased materials are next on the horizon.  This emerging, and often complex area, typically requires a significant amount of technical knowledge in order to properly navigate through performance and processing issues. 

Lastly, there is an ongoing discussion on how additives such as colorants impact the recycling stream.  PTI has taken an aggressive role by participating in the development of colorant technology which helps address some of these complex issues. For more information on how PTI can assist in understanding how "recyclable is your package" look to PTI Recycle

PTI has also lead in the development of recycling technology. For example, Phoenix Technologies, (a PTI  company) is a pioneer in the manufacture of recycled PET resin.  Currently, there are commercial applications which use as much as 100 percent of Phoenix rPET.
