LIMEX can also become plastic alternatives. Plastic molding methods such as vacuum forming or extrusion molding can be expected to be applied to products. Furthermore, it is possible to recycle collected LIMEX Sheets into LIMEX Pellets. LIMEX Pellets can be used for remanufacturing them into sheets or for it to be remanufactured by extrusion molding. There are many applications of LIMEX plastic alternatives including folders and plastic POP displays in the sheet form, and as food containers, daily household items and industrial material in the extrusion molded form.
We are continuing to improve on the quality without losing its physical property so that LIMEX can be a better alternative to plastic.
The Advantages of LIMEX Plastic Alternatives
The first advantage of LIMEX plastic alternatives is that there is far less petroleum used in comparison to conventional plastics. For this reason, using LIMEX can contribute to conserving the scarce oil reserves and therefore also contributes to reducing CO2 emissions (37% reduced per kg, currently developing the technology to further reduce CO2 emissions). The second advantage is the stability of prices. It is difficult for the prices to be influenced by the fluctuations of oil prices.
