For Thyracont sustainability is a core point in the company’s philosophy. For a smaller carbon footprint, the vacuum gauges’ packaging is replaced by and by with “green” alternatives. The new protective case for VD8 compact vacuum meters consists up to 93% of renewable raw material. Here glucose, natural wax, minerals and natural fibre are used and plastic based on mineral oil can be widely avoided. The carbon required for producing the cases is gained of the CO2 atmosphere so that a later thermal recycling will be carbon-neutral.
The characteristics of the new, sustainable material with the European quality label GREEN BRAND are comparable with polypropylene. Hence, the vacuum gauges are well protected and kept safe.
At the end of its live, the case can be fully recycled and valuable raw materials remain in the resource cycle.
