Superior Rheology

High Melt Flow Rate (MFR) - Material flows better and the tool can fill the cavity easier, resulting in faster cycle times and dimensional performance

High Stiffness

Above 2700 MPA (Megapascal) flex modulus for load-bearing parts such as instrument panels

High Ductility

Energy management grades provide cold temperature ductility for interior applications

Thermal Management

High Heat Deflection Temperature (HDT) performance for underhood applications, providing durability and thermal stability

Sustainability Through Innovation – Turning Recycled Plastics into Cars

Post-industrial recycled (PIR) and post-consumer recycled (PCR) materials are being rapidly adopted to make new car parts in vehicles.

When approving a resin, you require a consistent, quality supply. GEON has a variety of products containing reclaimed materials and a long history with PCR and PIR content, going back over two decades.

There are Many Innovative Ways to Meet Your Sustainability Goals
