Good news for the environment: bio-based plastics from ROMIRA


ROMIRA takes environmental protection very seriously: The Pinneberg, Germany, based specialist for technical plastics actively supports the environment with its wide range of sustainable products. ROMIRA can offer a range of tailor-made plastic compounds that are either partially or completely made from renewable raw materials, which accordingly have a smaller “carbon footprint”.

Pinneberg/Germany, March 24th, 2016 - The bio-based plastics in ROMIRA’s product portfolio include polyamides, polyesters and polylactides. By compounding these plastics with specialised additives, these base polymers can be extended to offer additional properties and thus tailored to the individual needs of the customers.  
ROMIRA products based on sustainable raw materials are an outstanding choice for customer applications in electrics and electronics, for domestic utensils and daily use articles, and for automotive applications and other areas.   
One example is the polyamide 6.10 compound, which consists of 60 per cent renewable materials and offers some very interesting properties. This material is ideal for applications involving contact with water, such as pipes needing to meet stringent requirements in terms of hydrolysis resistance. In comparison to a polyamide 6 compound, this high-performance plastic is characterised by properties such as a lower density and reduced water absorption.
