The new Daplen™ PCR grades

A welcome addition to our portfolio of lightweight and natural fibre solutions

Created for use in interior, exterior and UTB automotive applications, the origins of the post-consumer recycled Daplen portfolio can be traced back to a collaborative development project with a European OEM partner. In fact, for the time being the Daplen grades will be produced, launched and marketed only in Europe, reflecting the enhanced awareness of environmental sustainability on the Continent. The availability of ready-made, high-end grades of consistent quality is sure to appeal to OEMs and Tier One suppliers, as the sustainable sourcing of product has been a generally challenging task thus far.
