Sabic And Polyray Introduce Certified Renewable Polycarbonate Into Eyewear Applications


SABIC and POLYRAY (Xiamen Hongtai Optical Co., Ltd.), announced their collaboration for the use of SABIC’s LEXAN™ polycarbonate (PC) resin based on certified renewable feedstock in the lenses of several eyewear end applications such as sunglasses, safety glasses and sports goggles.

SABIC’s certified renewable polycarbonate – an engineering thermoplastic resin - is part of the company’s TRUCIRCLE™ portfolio and services. Based on SABIC’s cradle-to-gate peer-reviewed LCA study, use of SABIC’s LEXAN polycarbonate resin can potentially result in reductions in carbon footprint of up to 61% and fossil depletion reduction of up to 35%.

POLYRAY is the first in the lens industry to offer a renewable PC lens. POLYRAY is the first ISCC PLUS certified lens supplier for the eyewear industry, giving their customers a consistent proof of a sustainable supply chain. ISCC is an independent global organization that provides the leading certification system offering solutions to address sustainability requirements for all feedstocks and markets, as well as traceability throughout the supply chain. ISCC PLUS certification can be a powerful tool for companies along the supply chain to address various environmental and social standards.
