IMPEX®, extruded, virtually unbreakable polycarbonate sheets with excellent optical and mechanical properties, have been evaluated as part of our MISSION: TOGETHER. RESPONSIBLE. The product family currently achieves a FIVE-DOT classification of 6 points in total.
We are already recovering and reusing our own production waste to create new material in the manufacture of IMPEX ® sheets, and we aim to continue increasing the proportion of recycled regrind content in the future.
All raw materials used in our IMPEX® sheets comply with the requirements in the current version of the European Union's Chemicals Regulation (REACH). In particular, IMPEX® 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 IMPEX® sheets are made of polycarbonate, a durable thermoplastic material, which has excellent optical and mechanical properties. Polycarbonate sheets are extremely impact resistant and are virtually unbreakable under normal conditions of use. In addition, the sheets have an excellent resistance to weathering; even at very low or very high temperatures (-40°C to +135°C) they are extremely hard-wearing and resilient. These qualities make IMPEX® sheets ideal for long-term applications both indoors and (in the version featuring UV protection) outdoors.
IMPEX® sheets can be sorted for recycling and reuse. As a thermoplastic, polycarbonate in its pure form is ideal for mechanical recycling.
