Its in-mold color delivers attractive aesthetics without the need for secondary painting that can harm the environment.

Leading manufacturer Giroflex is just one company that uses Akulon K224-G6,  in its 656 generation chairs. The 656 product line is their first to meet Cradle to Cradle certification’s stringent conditions for material purchasing, development, production and recycling.
