POLYCASA® SAN FIVE-DOT-MISSION
POLYCASA® SAN extruded styrene acrylonitrile copolymer (SAN) sheets have been assessed as part of our MISSION: TOGETHER. RESPONSIBLE. The product family currently achieves a FIVE-DOT classification of 5 points in total.
The current production of our POLYCASA® SAN sheets already contains a proportion of recycled material which is mainly recovered from our own production waste. After being sorted into individual types, the regrind is returned to the production process. We aim to continue increasing the proportion of recycled regrind in the sheets in the future.
All raw materials used in our POLYCASA® SAN sheets comply with the requirements in the current version of the European Union's Chemicals Regulation (REACH). In particular, POLYCASA® SAN sheets are free of any of the substances listed in the current version of the ECHA Candidate List of Substances of Very High Concern (SVHC).
Our POLYCASA® SAN family is made of styrene acrylonitrile (SAN), a durable thermoplastic copolymer which is suitable for long-term interior applications and also for use outdoors in the version featuring UV-protection. POLYCASA® SAN in exterior applications provides resistance to weathering and, according to feedback from our clients, can be used for outdoor applications for periods of more than 10 years. In addition, the sheets are extremely resistant to chemicals and to absorbing water.
POLYCASA® SAN sheets can be recycled and then reused without significant impact on the material properties. Styrene based polymers can even be recycled numerous times.
