Up to 50 % bio-attributed material in roofing applications

INEOS Styrolution (Frankfurt/M, Germany), the global leader in styrenics, recently announced that EdilPlast SRL (Atessa, Italy), part of First Corporation group, has chosen the company’s sustainable styrenics solutions for their latest generation of building products.

First Corporation group, leader since 1966 in the production of plastic products for buildings, offers a wide range of solutions, from the ground to the roof, entirely made in Italy and distributed throughout the world.

EdilPlast SRL, with the goal of constant innovation and development, has selected INEOS Styrolution's Luran® S ECO materials for Cover Innovation, a new roofing sheet solution.

Luran® S is an ASA (acrylonitrile styrene acrylate) polymer that offers superior long-term performance when exposed to UV light and heat. Its low maintenance and high weather resistance make Luran S the best material for a wide range of outdoor applications. Mixing with PVC or covering over PVC makes it perfect for applications such as roof tiles, gutters or drain down pipes. Luran S ECO is INEOS Styrolution's first sustainable ASA solution with up to 39% lower carbon footprint. The use of these materials will allow EdilPlast to use bio-attributed raw materials from 30% to 50%.

Giulio Mantelli, President of First Corporation Group and creator of Cover Innovation, states: “INEOS Styrolution has allowed us to reduce our ecological footprint by using sustainable materials in our production. Indeed, the new material has proven to be an optimal solution for products exposed to atmospheric agents. Cover Innovation products are a tangible result of First Corporation Group's R&D to make 100 % eco-sustainable and recyclable products".

Olivia Vigano, Key Account Manager at INEOS Styrolution, adds: “I am very excited that INEOS Styrolution is able to offer sustainable material that helps EdilPlast SRL reduce its own carbon footprint as well as that of the companies involved in the distribution process”. AT
