WHAT WE OFFER

RE-4 is a new packaging material based on ingredients already found in the common packaging production – talc, lime, and PP. Verified by successful results, we have redefined how PP and minerals can be combined in a foaming process. The receipt gives RE-4 a unique composition of a foldable structure similar to paper, combined with the essential physical and mechanical properties of plastic in one mono-material.

The result is a packaging material that outperforms on all environmental and economical parameters and (at least matches) all physical and mechanical parameters:
