High Quality Recycled Polymers for the Packaging Industry

At MBA Polymers UK, there are five great reasons why our packaging customers use recycled polymers instead of virgin:

  1. Performance - high rigidity and outstanding impact performance make our recycled polymers ideally suited to withstand rough handling

  2. Value - MBA's recycled polymers are great value for money when compared with virgin polymers

  3. Reduced carbon footprint - 75-86% lower carbon footprint than their virgin equivalents

  4. Quality assured - product that is certificated, sustainable and compliant with new and existing legislation

  5. Innovative and creative technical input - that helps you take full advantage of the compelling opportunities that recycled polymers offer

Current uses of MBA's PP grades include the production of totes, crates, pallets, paint pots, kegs and single and multiple use commercial and domestic containers.
MBA's ABS and HIPS grades are currently used in the production of cosmetic packaging, knife blade holders, reels & spools and hangers.
