Compatibilisers and problem solving for plastics recycling
Further interesting items in our line up are various additives for solving recycling quality problems such as slight contamination, moisture, brittleness, excessive oxidisation etc.
We have solutions to moisture problems either using recycled, or virgin plastics. Our TCM additive can be added during the pelletising stage in recycling, or at the conversion stage.
Considerable success has been achieved for LD and HD film blowing applications.
Problems due to damp recyclate causing the bubble to collapse or fisheyes to develop can be eliminated.
Volatility due to heavy print or incompatible materials can also be reduced or removed.
BRITTLENESS, OR “TIRED” MATERIAL
We have stabilisers which can halt further degradation during recycling and others which can put impact properties back into plastics that have lost integrity due to too many heat cycles. Flexural strength is returned to the polymer.
