ALTUGLAS™ R-Life Resins

ALTUGLAS™ R-Life is a range of sustainable solutions made from a chemical recycling process. Recently developed, acrylic resins are produced with a minimum of 50 percent of recycled Methyl Methacrylate (rMMA) monomer.

ALTUGLAS™ R-Life Resins provide comparable performance to a virgin material:

  • Optical quality (high light-transmittance)
  • Highest clarity, colorless: best solution for thick wall applications
  • High weathering and UV resistance (no need of coating)
  • Low weight (50% lighter than glass)
  • Easy to process (injection molding, extrusion)
  • The product has the potential to be recycled multiple times

Applications:

  • Automotive & Transportation
  • Building & Construction
  • Home & Household Appliance
  • General Lighting
  • Consumer Goods & Design
  • Medical

ALTUGLAS™ R-Life CN Cast Sheets

Trinseo recently developed a sustainable cast sheet solution using an advanced chemical recycling process. Through this process a minimum of 75 percent rMMA monomer is combined with virgin MMA.

ALTUGLAS™ R-Life recycled cast sheets provide comparable performance to a virgin material:

  • Optical quality (high light-transmittance)
  • Low weight (50% lighter than glass)
  • High weathering and UV resistance (no need for coating)
  • Wide range of colors and finishing (glossy, satin)
  • Easy processability (drilling, milling, bonding, thermoformability)
  • Adhere to ISO norm 7823-1
  • The product has the potential to be recycled multiple times

Applications:

  • Retail/POS (visual communication)
  • Building & Construction (esthetical & protective partitions, lighting, balustrades, sign, sanitaryware, bathtubs)
  • Transportation (glazing for marine, caravanning industries)
  • Industry
  • Interior Architecture/Furniture and Design

ALTUGLAS R-LIFE EX (Extruded) Sheets

ALTUGLAS™ R-Life EX is an extruded product produced with a minimum of 75 percent of reused PMMA scraps mixed with virgin PMMA resin.

ALTUGLAS™ R-Life extruded sheets provide comparable performance with sheets made with virgin resins:

  • Optical quality (high light-transmittance)
  • Low weight (50% lighter than glass)
  • High weathering and UV resistance (no need of coating)
  • Good tolerance thicknesses
  • Easy processability (drilling, milling, bonding, thermoformability)
  • Comply with ISO 7823-2
  • High recycling efficiency and reusing materials leads to multiple times recyclability

Applications:

  • Retail/POS (visual communication)
  • Building & Construction (esthetical & protective partitions, lighting, railings)
  • Transportation (glazing for marine, caravanning industries
  • Interior Architecture/Furniture and Design
