The Glass Polymer also reduces the amount of secondary packaging required to safely package glass products and eliminates liabilities associated with broken glass.
Other benefits include design freedom – beautiful, clear thick walls and an extensive ability for decoration – as well as being compatible with the PET post-consumer recycling stream.
The Glass Polymer family of copolyesters is a material that enables significant eco-design freedom. The mechanical, chemical resistance and barrier properties enable thickness and weight reduction, and functions integration, as well as the possibility of recycling. Product designs can be created to be reused multiple times, reducing consumption of valuable resources and harmful emissions.
The Glass Polymer is the designer’s choice for innovative and functional eco-design and offers a clear economic and ecological advantage.
For every 500MT of The Glass Polymer used as opposed to acrylic (PMMA), the energy saved could power 545 homes and take almost 100 cars off the road each year.
