About PRISM Worldwide, LLC
Prism Worldwide (Prism), a clean technology company, is pleased to announce the commercial availability of AncoraTM C-1000 Thermoplastic Elastomer (TPE). Based on Prism’s patented technology, Ancora™ C-1000 contains a minimum of 50% post-consumer recycle content derived from end-of-life tires while maintaining the look, feel and processing of a typical petrochemically derived TPE.
Ancora TPEs are a new class of TPE compounds utilizing polymers derived from end-of-life tires manufactured with Prism Worldwide’s patented PrismTM process. This process uses tire rubber as the primary feedstock in the production of polymer intermediates called PTR™. These intermediate polymers are then compounded into injection moldable TPE pellets at our recently acquired Sodus, NY plant.
The first compound in a series, Ancora C-1000 is suitable for use in a broad range of applications, such as automotive all-weather mats, weather stripping, footwear and more. This new Ancora compound is available in black and has a Shore A hardness of 80.
