What is Tectan®

Tectan® is made out of unused waste from the beverage carton industry, which consists mainly of paper. In a specially developed process, the waste (raw materials) is shredded, dried and then converted to granules. Depending on the designated usage, the required amount of polyethylene is added to the polyethylene which is already present for the original purpose of sealing the carton material. The resulting Tectan® is processed further, mainly using the injection molding technique, and turned into products such as core plugs and edge protectors.
