The Steelcase Flex Perch Stool. 

Made with Ultramid® B3EG6 CcycledTM

Ultramid® B3EG6 CcycledTM is an injection moldable polyamide (Nylon) 6 material that is made from a diverted waste stream generated during electronics production.  The waste stream would have been incinerated but instead was used to create a high value, durable product.

Benefits of Ultramid® B3EG6 CcycledTM:
  • High strength and stiffness
  • Excellent surface finish
  • Same performance as virgin/fossil based material
  • Supports a circular economy by creating a new life from a waste stream
  • Available in standard black, and uncolored,  as well as custom pre-colored

The BASF’s Mass Balance Approach

In the chemical industry, renewable or recycled raw materials are added at the beginning of the production process and added to the final product. This offers several advantages: It reduces both greenhouse gas emissions and the use of fossil raw materials, while the quality and properties of a product remain the same. Thus, the products can be processed in the same way as conventionally produced materials. So no formulations, equipment or processes need to be adapted. And customers who buy mass-balanced products can use them like conventional products and benefit from the same quality.

Boln seat

with Elastoflex® W BMB

Elastoflex® W is the brand of the flexible polyurethane foams. The structure of the foam provides the required resistance to hold the body and provide the right comfort in each application. Properties like density, fire resistance and compression can be adapted to the market needs. These excellent properties remain unchangeable when the BMB approach is used, but in addition a considerable reduction of the PCF is obtained. No need to compromise performance for being sustainable.
