Mypolen

Mypolen is a next-generation upcycled polymer.

Why Next-Generation?

  • Basic recycled polymers compete on price advantage relative to virgin plastics, with specific characteristics like impact strength, UV stabilization, etc. incidental only.
  • Mypolen is aimed at quality-sensitive industries that want to reduce their carbon footprint without jeopardizing the quality of their product.

Why a product AND a service?

  • Mypolen is modified to suit the needs of specific clients.
  • Those needs are determined through a process of consultation and product development between Myplas, the converter and the final client.
  • We can also match specifications to specific Virgin COC’s.
  • Myplas then develops a proprietary blend in our lab using differential sorting of raw materials, pre- and post-blending, additives and continuous testing.
  • Each batch is continuously tested in our sophisticated lab to ensure the final product meets the needs of the client and is supplied with a Certificate of Conformance to ensure compliance with your requirements.

Sustainability Advantage

  • Mypolen is a sustainable replacement that reduces the carbon emissions of your company without jeopardizing the quality of your product.
  • Your sustainability reporting in your AFS can therefore improve without jeopardizing quality sensitive products.
  • Around 1 tonne of CO2e carbon saving per 1 tonne of recycled plastic used.
  • Mypolen contributes to the circular economy, using post-consumer products like ice cream tubs and milk bottles and turning it into shopping baskets, transport lugs and shampoo bottles.
  • Applying circular economy principles to global plastic packaging flows could transform the plastics economy and drastically reduce negative externalities such as leakage into oceans.
  • Emission reduction.
  • Proudly South African.
