Manufacturing black rigid film recyclable and therefore sustainable.
Carbon black is one of the oldest and most commonly used pigments for coloring plastics black. However, carbon black also has some disadvantages: In the recycling process, carbon black prevents plastics from being detected by optical sorting machines based on near infrared (NIR). This means that black plastics colored with carbon black cannot be recycled and must instead be incinerated or landfilled.
Buergofol offers alternatives in this matter
can be recycled
less energy / material
Instead of films colored with carbon black, we offer products with better recyclability, resource conservation and at least the same color quality.
The time has come to say goodbye to carbon black and instead
to modern and sustainable pigments instead.
