Why is C2P a reference partner for plasturgists and equipment manufacturers?
C2P’s commitment is to produce high quality, reliable and stable rPP materials. We have a diversified portfolio of products, focused on the high-end market thanks to our experience in compounding that allows as to develop products on demand according to the specifications established by our plastics customers. In addition, C2P is certified by leading automotive manufacturers, allowing OEMs to offer and use our products without the need for future approval.
Compared to virgin polypropylene, recycled (or rPP) is of equivalent quality and has a decisive advantage: its ecological impact. Resulting from the recycling of post-consumer or industrial waste, its manufacturing process generates fewer CO2 emissions. It also limits the consumption of natural resources because virgin PP is produced from crude oil. Thus C2P issues each of its customers a “Carbon Economy Certificate” based on the tonnages of rPP consumed.
With the new law on the circular economy, manufacturers and principals in many industries such as the automotive, packaging and construction industries will have to incorporate more recycled raw materials such as rPP. It is a strong axis of sustainable development for the entire sector and a collective awareness of the ecological advantage of our materials. Proof of this is the fact that in the automotive sector, our products are certified for outdoor applications but now also for indoor applications. Of course, driven by this regulatory context and by eco-design approaches, we want to make our products known by a larger number of users.
For a customer, why choose C2P’s rPP compounds?
Beyond the environmental criteria linked to more responsible production thanks to the rPP, it is above all the technical quality and performance of our products that make the difference. The advantage of working with C2P is precisely our ability to deliver stable and consistent products. We have developed a range of more than 70 compound references with well-defined technical specifications in terms of mechanics, physic-chemistry or colors. For example, our products have fairly tight fluidity tolerances, which make it easier to adjust machine parameters during production campaigns.
Our team remains attentive to the more specific needs of processors and we can develop a tailor-made product based on specifications or to match a material. Either we are able to develop the product completely, or we can modify the specificities of an existing product in order to adapt it to the demand.
Finally, we are also a partner that has a long-term relationship. Indeed, some references were developed more than 25 years ago.
What are the missions of C2P’s sales department?
In addition to constantly listening to our customers’ needs, we are there to advise them and facilitate their relationship with C2P.
Having the right answer at the right time is a constant challenge. The primary mission of the sales department is to help the customer choose the right material from the beginning of his project. To this end, we work closely with the processors. It is essential to study the specifications and the specificities of the application in order to target our proposal.
In addition, the C2P sales department has a culture of responsiveness and proactivity. Selling recycled products is not per se a differentiating factor, especially in a competitive environment like ours. C2P has chosen high value-added products but also to position itself as a partner at the service of its customers’ supply chain. We strive to anticipate our customers’ material needs and support them in the daily monitoring of their activity with C2P. This ranges from the provision of analyses, to the rapid and reliable delivery of all necessary documentation, to discussions on current or future regulatory developments.
Our great strength is also relational: a perfect knowledge of our customers and their consumption habits makes it possible to support them in optimizing their supply chain. This is in order to reduce transport costs such as CO2 emissions. C2P offers various packaging options for compounds: in bulk delivered in 25-tonne tank trucks, big-bags and octabins over one tonne or pallets of 25 kg bags.
