SACRAMENTO, CA, UNITED STATES, January 4, 2024 / — In response to fabricators seeking sustainable materials with properties that match traditional, less environmentally-friendly options, the materials industry is rising to the occasion, innovating and supplying materials that meet these evolving demands. Recycled materials have typically lost some of their desirable physical properties. However, for plastic fabricators looking to reduce their environmental footprint without reducing the physical integrity of their projects, Interstate Advanced Materials now offers the Renovo line: materials that are sustainable without compromise.

Renovo-MPC is a sustainable polycarbonate sheet created from reclaimed post-consumer material. Matching the durability of standard polycarbonate, it’s up to 200 times more impact-resistant than glass while maintaining the same optical clarity and light transmission. It’s also eligible for LEED Materials & Resources credits for certain applications. Ideal for uses like durable windows, skylights, machinery safety shields, and architectural glazing, Renovo-MPC effectively substitutes for general-purpose polycarbonate.

Renovo-HIPS is an impact-resistant polystyrene sheet made with 25% recycled content. Relatively cost-effective compared to similar materials, Renovo-HIPS features comparable properties to non-recycled polystyrene, including its impact resistance and ease at which it is fabricated or machined. It has excellent thermoforming properties and can be shaped into custom shapes via hot bending. Renovo-HIPS has excellent ink adhesion and can be painted and printed on, allowing it to replace non-recycled polystyrene in displays, signage, and graphic applications.

Both Renovo-MPC and Renovo-HIPS may be recycled after use.

The Renovo line of sustainable materials is available exclusively from Interstate Advanced Materials.
