Resin distributors Chase Plastic Services Inc. and The Aspect Co. have expanded their sustainable product offerings through recent deals.
Clarkston, Mich.-based Chase Plastics has expanded its CP Pryme product line to include CP Pryme ECO resins. In a news release, Chase Plastics officials said the new materials, like other CP Pryme resins, are made from reprocessed materials and can be used with less stringent applications.
"Chase Plastics has offered [post-industrial and post-consumer] recycled products for over 30 years," President Adam Paulson said. CP Pryme ECO "will provide an environmentally friendly solution to applications across numerous industries, supporting our customers' growing desire to drive sustainability initiatives," he added.
Officials said Chase Plastics offers a wide array of sustainable products from domestic and international suppliers. For many years, the firm also has operated in-house recycling programs, used recycled materials and reduced energy consumption in their facilities with resource-efficient lighting, water, and HVAC solutions.
In 2016, Chase Plastics implemented Operation Clean Sweep, a program of best management practices to reduce accidental pellet, flake and powder loss at its South Bend, Ind., warehouse. In 2021, the firm joined Operation Clean Sweep Blue to enhance its commitment to managing, measuring, and reporting unrecovered plastic releases into the environment.
On Dec. 6, Chase Plastics is hosting a webinar to share more information about the new CP Pryme ECO line and other sustainable product options. Registration for the event is free and can be found on the firm's website.
Chase is a stocking distributor with a portfolio of more than 35,000 grades of specialty, engineering, and commodity plastics.
