Floreon is a halogen free alternative to flame retarded ABS and is suitable for both chemical and mechanical recycling. In addition to this, it has up to 7 times lower carbon footprint than ABS.

FLAME RETARDED ABS

Flame retarded ABS is not recycled today due to concerns about halogenated flame retardants. Material choice for the $29.6 billion Electronics and Electrical industry this translates to a vast volume of plastic not getting recycled.

...however Floreon has now CHANGED this perception

Floreon is the HALOGEN FREE alternative to Flame Retarded ABS that can be recycled

  • Floreon’s base material (PLA) is ideally suited to chemical recycling.
     

  • In pilot plant /kilo lab trials with the Biorenewables Development Centre, Floreon were able to recover 100% of the lactic acid feedstock in a simple and fast reaction, removing ALL flame retardant and fillers by simple filtration.
     

  • This feedstock can then be used to regenerate virgin polymer with no downcycling.

Benchmarking of Floreon v's ABS

Floreon’s durable and flame retarded grades were tested alongside a high performance ABS and flame retarded ABS grade to provide a benchmark. Floreon is able to match the notched impact strength of ABS. Moulded products have also passed all necessary drop testing.
