Innovations in the plastics industry drive technological progress worldwide. Due to the increasing demand, the need for future-oriented fillers is growing. The focus is increasingly on resource-saving and sustainable materials. Poraver® expanded glass made from post consumer recycled glass meets these requirements as a sustainable filler in the best possible way.

With the Poraver Plastics Center, a new facility was created with the aim of developing and testing modified plastic compounds based on thermoplastics and Poraver® lightweight fillers. The special glass-polymer compounds combine the advantages of glass and plastic in one product and can be made of up to 100 % recycled material by using the Poraver® lightweight fillers and recycled plastics.



The Kunststoff Technical Centre is equipped with the latest plant technology and the corresponding analysis facilities. Therefore we are your competent partner for compound production and process development. The Kunststoff Center team provides professional advice and offers access to the technical center.

We can carry out complex test series for you on our modern injection moulding machine. A modular tool concept guarantees high flexibility in the production of standardized test specimens or customer-specific components. With our experience we support you in the design of parameters and machine configuration.
