Our premium quality
regenerated granules

A PREMIUM REGENERATED PLASTIC WITH TECHNICAL CHARACTERISTICS SIMILAR TO THOSE OF VIRGIN PLASTIC

Skytech produces a range of premium regenerated styrene granules – rABS and rPS, and rPP – from post-consumer plastics that meet the requirements of manufacturers and plastics specialists. These PCR* plastics are 100% derived from the recycling of waste from end-of-life vehicles (ELV) and electrical and electronic equipment (WEEE).

Our granules can be custom produced to meet our different customers’ specific technical requirements and specifications. As a result, our granules:

  •  have properties that comply with rigorous mechanical and aesthetic requirements
  •  are easy to transform on an industrial level
  •  emit little CO2 during manufacturing and have a positive impact on the planet
  •  contribute to the development of a 100% circular economy

Our range of industrial quality granules is available in black and various greys,and will soon be available in white.

*Post-consumer recycled

OUR CERTIFIED QUALITY APPROACH

The certifications for our regenerated materials, combined with the quality control we apply to the production process at every stage of manufacturing for each batch produced, ensures our customers satisfaction.

Quality control starts from the selection of waste supplies. To guarantee the excellence of our products, each batch of granules is systematically sampled and checked.

Thanks to state-of-the-art equipment, SKYTECH guarantees the homogeneity and stability of its product characteristics.

In particular, we test:

  •  melt flow index (MFI)
  •  density
  •  filler ratio
  •  mechanical properties (tensile/bending, Charpy and Izod impact)
  •  presence of metals covered by the European RoHS (X-ray fluorescence analysis).

Each certificate of conformity get manufactured batch and is traceable throughout the production chain.

*Results obtained from tests carried out in the laboratory when the polymers are separated

SKYTECH works in close collaboration with many suppliers of plastic materials and is thus able to guarantee its customers regular volume deliveries and continuity of supply.

A wide range of certifications that covers a broad variety of uses

SKYTECH stands out for its ability to offer high-end engineering plastics, whatever the regenerated resin produced. In addition to the usual technical information, we also provide product specifications that comply with specific certifications:

  •  Eucertplast
  •  RoHS Regulation 2011/65/EU
  •  Reach EU 1907/2006 (SVHC)
  •  POP 850/2004
  •  Packaging directive EU 94/62 (heavy metals)
  •  Prop 65, officially known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986

Since 2021, our rABS post-consumer plastic resins also meet the standards set by FDA and EU regulations for food contact in the US market. Tests carried out by an independent laboratory have confirmed SKYTECH rABS compliance with regulations 10/2011/EC, 1935/2004/EC art.3, decree 2007/766 and US FDA 21 CFR 181.32.

SKYTECH regenerated products have several certifications that guarantee that they can be used for a variety of applications by its customers. These certifications give SKYTECH a clear advantage, which will only be strengthened with the addition of a new certification currently in progress: Cosmetic Packaging EU 1223/2009: Cosmetic Packaging EU 1223/2009.

Our company operates under ISO 9001 and 14001 certification
