What is Tectan®?
Tectan® is made out of unused waste from the beverage carton industry, which consists mainly of paper. In a
eloped process, the waste (raw material) is shredded, dried and then converted into granules.
Depending on the designated usage, the required amount of polyethylene is added to the existing polyethylene
that stems from the original carton sea-
lant. The resulting Tectan® is processed further, mainly by injection
molding, and turned into products such as core plugs and edge protectors.
