Polinox Participates in the Development of Sustainable ATM

18 September 2012

Polinox integrated the chain of suppliers which participated in the development of the Contemporary Bank Project, name of the sustainable ATM created by Edra Equipamentos, one of the Brazilian leading developers of solutions for the financial sector.

According to Polinox, it supplied the Brasnox PF, a methyl ethyl ketone formulation free of phthalates, which are considered potentially harmful to the environment. The product was used in the manufacture of composite parts, a type of high performance plastic that gives shape to the walls and ceiling of the new ATM.

“The Contemporary Bank Project ratifies the environmentally friendly profile of composite materials,” says Roberto Pontifex, Director of Polinox. In addition to the peroxides free of phthalates, the unsaturated polyester resin adopted by Edra Equipamentos – Biopoli, by Elekeiroz – is derived partially from renewable sources, such as fatty acids from seeds of oilseed plants, and post-consumer recycled raw materials, including PET bottles. Polinox explains that the ATM also has other special features, such as the use of solar energy and a collector of rainwater to irrigate a garden on the roof.
