Symphony is a world leader in the development and marketing of additives and masterbatches.

Plastic is used in a wide range of industries requiring specific, customised qualities to enhance products in areas as diverse as food packaging and flame retardants.  Symphony’s leading products are marketed under the d2w and d2p brands.

d2w Oxo-biodegradable plastic technology. Developed for short-term products and packaging and designed to address the global problem of plastic waste that escapes collection for recycling and ends up in the open environment.

d2p is the brand name for a family of specialist additives, including antimicrobial, insect and rodent repellents, odour adsorbers and other technologies designed to protect and enhance plastic products.

Established in 1995, we have a wealth of experience in helping our customers and partners develop and improve their products.

Symphony’s trademarks represent not just a supply of additive or masterbatch, but a whole system aimed at adding value to every participant in the supply chain – right through to the end user.

Proves oxo-biodegradable technology works in the marine environment

Symphony Environmental are very pleased to announce the successful conclusion of the 5-year Oxomar study sponsored by the French Agence National de Recherche.

This study provides further comprehensive and reliable scientific data on the performance of d2w in the oceans, and proves, degradability, biodegradability and non-toxicity.  The study had a multidisciplinary approach including physics, chemistry, and biology.

d2p antimicrobial effective kills Coronavirus in one hour

In September 2020 Symphony announced that d2p masterbatch incorporated in a polyolefin film, found a virus reduction of 99.9% in one hour, after the virus comes into contact with the plastic.

Tested against the bovine form of Coronavirus in accordance with International Standard, ISO 21702-2019.

 

Symphony has commenced a legal action against the EU institutions in their own courts, challenging the ban on oxo-degradable plastics in the SUP Directive 2019/904. Oxo-degradable plastic is not the same as oxo-biodegradable plastic.

The case is on-going

 

Analysis of the composition of plastics to evaluate polymer stability and degradation using industry standard ageing and polymer characterisation techniques.

We have laboratory-scale extrusion and conversion equipment for formulation and development.
