DSM announces that it expands its partnership with the Ravago Group, a leader in distribution, resale, compounding and recycling of plastic and elastomeric raw materials. The two companies have combined DSM’s expertise in polyamide 6 with Ravago’s recycling know - how to develop a portfolio of glass reinforced recycled PA6 compounds.

The materials will be offered by DSM directly and distributed by Ravago Group member Resinex, which has a leading position in the plastics and rubbers distribution market across Europe and Turkey, and which is already a well-established distributor of DSM engineering plastics.

The new recycled PA6 grades, which DSM is marketing under its Akulon brand, contain more than 50% post-consumer resin from well-identified and dependable sources. DSM is supplying grades with 30% and 35% glass fiber reinforcement. Thanks to their inherent strength and performance profile, the grades are particularly suited to automotive under - the - bonnet applications such as air intake manifolds and engine covers, as well as furniture applications , including structural parts in office chairs.
