Axion Polymers can supply its Axfoil 100-per-cent-recycled extruded-sheet product in new shades to suit any customer or market requirements.

It is particularly suited to thermo-forming or sheet-conversion applications.

Novel packaging items, office products such as folders or document holders and even business or credit cards are among the potential uses for the polymer, which is derived from recycled fridge plastic, says the company.

Axion director, Keith Freegard, said: ‘Using this whiter base layer material for the sheet, we can colour-match to specific Pantone and RAL shades to produce the individual depth and type of colour that customers want.

‘So we can supply the precise options and even an anti-static surface if required.’ Available in reels to varying widths and thicknesses, Axfoil is manufactured to the same ISO 9000 quality-controlled standards as the plastic recycler’s Axpoly recycled polymers.

Originally launched as a black polystyrene sheet for a range of uses, from horticultural pots to in-store POS displays, Axfoil is a sustainable alternative that offers CO2 impact savings.

When made in polystyrene material recovered from WEEE plastic waste, 90 per cent less CO2 is used in manufacture compared to virgin polymer, according to the company.

It can also be made from PP plastic.

ROHS-compliant and Reach-ready, it undergoes stringent quality testing and is supplied with full specification data sheets.

Polymer properties can be modified to optimise the recycled plastic for various product applications – from engineering to furnishing sectors.

Samples of moulded items can be thermoformed in Axion’s laboratory, giving clients a preview of how their product will look in a fully recycled sheet that is suitable for their manufacturing purposes.
