Durethan® Scopeblue -
our most sustainable premium polyamide 6
Durethan® BLUE BKV60H2.0EF therefore has the same properties as virgin material and can be processed just as well. A changeover in production to other molds, for example, is not necessary.
We see great potential for the use of this highly rigid and strong engineering material wherever the purely fossil-based counterparts of the Durethan® BKV60 family are already proving their worth in series production - for example, in the automotive industry in the manufacture of car front ends, brake pedals and oil pans.
With Durethan® ECOBKV30H2.0, ECOBKV35H2.0 and ECOBKV60XF, LANXESS has already recently introduced three polyamide 6 compounds that contain 30, 35 and 60 percent by weight, respectively, of recycled fibers from glass waste according to the ISCC Plus-certified mass balance process. Due to strong customer interest, this product family has been expanded in recent months to include further compounds based on polyamide 6 and 66.
Mass balance - what is that actually?
The sustainable origin of raw materials is certified according to ISCC Plus ("International Sustainability and Carbon Certification"). This applies to LANXESS's production sites in Antwerp and Krefeld-Uerdingen as well as to the precursors. They come exclusively from suppliers who are also ISCC Plus certified.
The mass balance procedure introduced with ISCC Plus certification compares raw material quantities used and product quantities placed on the market and creates an accounting link between input and output. If the amount of raw material needed to manufacture a defined product quantity is substituted by sustainable alternatives, the procedure allows the proportions of sustainable material in the end product to be precisely determined. This allows the sustainability characteristics of the product to be transparently identified for the user.
