Polyethylene was discovered in 1933 by Reginald Gibson and Eric Fawcett at the British industrial giant Imperial Chemical Industries (ICI). This material evolved into two forms, low density polyethylene (LDPE) and high density polyethylene (HDPE).
Reedy is committed to continual improvement of technology that will lessen environmental impact of plastics production. We do this by offering mechanisms for reducing the volume of non-renewable polymers while improving performance of bio polymers and sustainable resources.
Reedy was founded in response to the growing awareness of the effects of manufacturing on the environment. We introduced technology that reduced emissions, material use and energy, and made manufacturers more productive in the process. This technology is widely used today, and we continue to improve performance in the ever-evolving plastics industry. Reedy knows that you can do what's right for the environment and still increase your bottom line. We're doing our part – let us help you do yours.
We developed solutions for plastics processors to further improve the performance of biodegradable resins. We present alternate methods to toxic processing with recyclable and reusable foamed products. We listen to our customers and we respond.
Using SAFOAM/SAFTEC in injection molding allows the production of the same part with considerably lower clamp force, meaning it takes less energy to operate the actual machine. This could result in smaller machines, requiring smaller spaces, which in turn require less electricity. The savings are exponential.
