Sustainable Plastic Materials
Star Plastics is a recycled material supplier and sustainable long-term partner for your business. With roots as a plastics recycling company, sustainability has always been at the core of our business. Consumers’ demand for products made from recycled plastic will increase, and we will continue to innovate high-performance, sustainable plastic materials in PC, ABS, PC alloys and other polymers well into the future.
With more than 30 years of experience, the team at Star is highly skilled in qualifying various recycled plastic material feed-streams, including both post-consumer and post-industrial recycled content, as well as in understanding the physical and performance characteristics of the reprocessed resin. Combined with our technical expertise in material formulation, we’re able to upgrade that material through internal processes and find value in recycled content as quality feedstock.
With the high demand of using post-consumer recycled content and post-industrial recycled content in the next generation of consumer goods, we’ve developed sustainable solutions as standard plastic material alternatives to our entire product offer, all compounded to meet customer requirements. An example of a like-prime compounded sustainable plastic alternative is ReStart, our recycled-content plastic product line.
This sustainable plastic product line is UL recognized and contains 35%-50% recycled content; it’s ideal for customers looking to satisfy sustainability initiatives while not sacrificing part performance. The ReStart line serves to function electronics, lawn and garden, household appliances, and any other application that typically requires PC, PC FR, ABS, or PCABS resin materials. In line with our product standards, the recycled plastic material follows the strict behaviors and controlled ranges of prime materials. It’s also available in custom colors!
