Mitsui Plastics, Inc. provides a wide variety of resins and traditional automotive manufacturing materials, as a partner of our planet, we strive to shift towards a more sustainable future by offering several eco-friendly products that are a direct replacement for traditional automotive materials while still maintaining key specifications. Check out our new to learn about the latest environmentally conscious offerings from Mitsui Plastics, Inc. Sustainable & New Materials Brochure Available Grades: Ocean Reclaimed Grade
PA6 Glass filled options varying from 30%-50% available. Mineral filled options varying form 15%-25% available. Ocean recycled content varying from 30%-50% available. Applications Include: Engine Covers, Air Cleaners, Frunk, Etc. PC-ABS/PET Ocean recycled content varying from 5-10% available. Additional 40-45% post-consumer recycled content available. Applications Include: Guide Brackets, Rear Monitor Covers, Etc. While using ocean reclaimed plastics to reduce CO 2 emissions, these products still maintain all the following characteristics: Tensile Strength Flexural Modulus Flexural Strength Impact Strength Shrinkage Izod Impact Top Bio Feedstock Grade:
Bio-Based Polyurethane (PU) Derived from non-edible plants, such as castor seeds, offering a product containing 15% bio-content in its final product form. Produces approximately only 50% of the CO2 exhaust that is produced by Petroleum-based PU. Commonly used for seat cushions, this material is sought after for its increased riding comfort and increase ball rebound.
PA56 PA6 and PA66 equivalents available. 30% and 50% glass filled options are available. Mechanical properties on are on par with virgin PA6 or PA66. Enhanced visual appearance. PBT & TPEE Currently only available for pilot samples. Mass production will begin in 2024. Top Recycled Grade:
Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) Material – TPO & PP Contains 20-30% recycled content and maintains key technical specifications. Available in vast color and speckled options. Perfect for a drop-in replacement for Polypropylene (PP) and Thermoplastic Polyolefins (TPO) for interior and exterior applications. Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) Material – PP, ABS, HDPE & HIPS High purity 100% PCR based PP, ABS, HDPE, and HIPS materials compounded from the PCR sourced detailed in the chart below. Excellent traceability from in-house supplier monitoring software. Advanced R&D and quality control systems: Custom grade support readily available upon request. Custom formulations have been developed for automotive, electronics, and many other consumer industries. Abundant PCR recovery sources, allowing for potential of rapid increase in volume production. Post-Consumer Recycled (PCR) Material – PC, PC-ABS, PC-ASA, PBT, TPEE From a mechanical recycling process, high-quality PCR sourced from wafer trays, headlamps, sheets, airbags, and cable ties is compounded into PC, PC-ABS, and/or PC-ASA. Chemically recycled PBT and TPEE is available for sampling/development and will be in mass production by 2025. Post-Industrial Recycled (PIR) Material Contains >75% PIR content and maintains key technical specifications. Ideal drop-in replacement for ABS, PC-ABS and Nylon. Greatly reduces global warming potential upon manufacture! Top Carbon Offset Grade:
Polyketone (PK) – Carbon Sequestering Material A new “green” polymeric material composed of carbon monoxide and olefins that actually utilizes carbon monoxide in its manufacturing. Used in many under hood and nylon replacement applications with room for interior applications such as shift modules, arm rests and air ducts. Used in electrical applications such as connectors, plugs, switches and sockets. Produces little to no VOCs, has high impact strength, is anti-squeak, has high chemical resistance, good wear & abrasion behavior and good flame-retardancy. Top
