LIMEX can become an alternative to plastic. It can be used for injection molding, vacuum molding, extrusion molding and inflation molding. Furthermore, it is possible to collect and pulverize LIMEX Sheet scraps and post-consumer LIMEX products, and recycle them to LIMEX Pellets. Recycled LIMEX pellets can be used for injection molding products. LIMEX is used as plastic alternative in a wide variety of applications, such as folders, POP displays, containers, packaging, various everyday goods and industrial products. We are continuing the R&D to improve the quality and physical properties of LIMEX.
Advantages of LIMEX Plastic Alternatives
The first advantage of LIMEX as plastic alternatives is that it can significantly reduce the use of oil compared with conventional plastic products. As a result, LIMEX can save oil and reduce CO2 emissions (approximately 37% reduction per kg, to be reduced further through R&D). The second advantage is price stability, due to its lower dependency on oil prices. *From LCA joint research with the Institute of Industrial Science, the University of Tokyo
