Plastics in Important Duties

Premix plastics have functionalities that improve the safety of our society

Plastics can do good, too!

As a producer of plastic materials and compounds, we are fully aware of the negative effects that most of all the disposable plastics have on the environment. Although the plastics we operate with, are far from disposable, we share the concern and take considerable actions for protecting the environment. We are constantly enhancing our production processes and material effectiveness for example through reuse and recycling. We aim to reach continuous improvement in our health, safety and environmental performance. Our production makes solutions come true every day. We know that our customers can produce the best products using the best raw materials only. For us, only the best is good enough. When you see the Premix logo, you know you can trust the product.

Plastics in Important Duties

From the perspective of the entire use of natural resources, it is not justifiable in any way to end the use of plastics. Giving up plastics would be harmful to people and the environment since plastics have important duties for the functionality​ and sustainable development of society. ​ Plastic and plastic products save energy and cut greenhouse emissions, among other things, by lessening waste, by making transportation more efficient, and by acting as insulation. ​ Plastics make food last longer, ensure clean drinking water, and are important factors in modern health care. Our plastic materials, for example, are used as pipette tips in Diagnostics. The benefits of plastics are based explicitly on their lightweight. The lightweight has a direct connection to the consumption of fossil fuels. A light plastic component in a vehicle with many light plastic parts brings both cost and energy savings.

However, any plastics should not end up in nature but should be recycled instead - both within the industry and at homes.

 

PREXELENT™ - the responsible way of fighting harmful microbes

Our newly released technology is originally based on an active natural agent whose antimicrobial properties have been known for centuries – the pine tree resin. It offers countless ways to apply it to maintain purity and prevent spoilage caused by unwanted microbes. For us, this new technology is one way to create a safe society with functional plastics. 

More sustainable products with Premix's functional plastics

Products' life-cycle and environmental footprint are important factors designers have to consider in their work. Our PRE-ELEC® and PREPERM® product families as well as our newly released PREXELENT antimicrobial technology help to design more sustainable products.

We are also fully committed to the chemical industry’s global Responsible Care ® sustainability program.

Conductive plastics have many advantages compared to metals: 

  •   Adjustable electrical conductivity
  •   Light weight
  •   Wide range of properties available
  •   Good processability (also in 3D shapes)
  •   Mass-production friendly
