Thousands of tons of car windscreens are recycled every year. Nowadays, the thermoplastic interlayer (PVB) that prevents fragmentation of the glass in case of breakage, is also recycled.

This recycled post-consumer PVB gets a second application in a solid or liquid form.

Matco specialises in the production of compounds based on these recycled PVB dispersions, especially for the textile and carpet industries.

PVB applications:

  • Elastomers
  • Impact modifier
  • PVC compound
  • Textile binder
  • Hot melt
  • Coatings
  • Glues
