Recycle – Post Consumer and Post Industrial

Recycled materials are typically divided into two segments; Post Industrial and Post Consumer.

In both cases, very well-defined compounds of high quality are developed. Post Industrial grades are of course of higher quality and a little more expensive, but the fact is that Post Consumer qualities often do the job.

With an ever-increasing interest in recycled materials, Versalis has launched REVIVE® series, where the properties are improved by the addition of approximately 25% new product to carefully selected Post Consumer sources.

Versalis REVIVE® is a product range based on the base polymers; Polyethylene and Polystyrene, where the components are recovered from sorted municipal plastic waste.

REVIVE® the product line has become an integral part of Versalis global circular economy projects, transforming plastic waste from municipal collection into new, high-quality raw materials that can be included in existing products.

Post Consumer waste is typically very heterogeneous, whereby the mechanical properties are greatly weakened and therefore very difficult to recycle. However, the recycling material proportion is up to 75% in the REVIVE® PE range based on the specific process used by Versalis, which allows a higher performance thermoplastic material using an appropriate compatibilizer as well as potential additives in compounding. Thus, the materials from Versalis REVIVE® will be better suited for use in applications where post-consumer plastics will not normally be usable.

Versalis REVIVE® contains a number of HDPE and LD/LLDPE qualities:

  • REVIVE® PE COM75H is an HDPE compound based on selected high-density plastic waste suitable for use with blown film, blow casting and extrusion technology.
  • REVIVE® PE COM75L is an LD/LLDPE compound based on selected plastic waste with a low density suitable for use with blown film and extrusion technology.

In the product portfolio there are also qualities within expandable polystyrene (EPS), where the abstraction of recycled materials is based on products such as cups, trays and yogurt cups.

Manufacturer - Versalis

Versalis desire to support the circular economy within various plastic industries around the world began with a precise strategy and concrete action plan, where the product range gives plastics new life and preserves its value.

Through a large research effort and partnership with various companies within the plastics industries around Europe, Versalis has developed REVIVE® the product range based on polyethylene and styrene.

This segment, with recycled plastic material, expands and complements the product portfolio so that their customers are now offered innovative materials based on recycled material with a high level of mechanical properties.

Value-adding guidance and innovation

Either we find a suitable raw material within our current range – or we develop a brand-new product for you.

Knowledge that translates into qualified elections

An optimal raw material is the foundation for a plastic product with strong properties and the prerequisite for an efficient development process and a competitive production economy.

Choosing the right plastic type and mastarbach is therefore an important but also a complex decision-making process, because there are so many factors that come into play.

When you add the environmental selection criteria to this, qualified plastic technical advice is essential for the functionality of your product, your brand’s reputation and your financial benefits.

It is our most important task to optimise all three things.

Basis Polymerer

Beskrivelse:

Til gruppen af Basisplast regner man typisk Polyethylen (PE), Polypropylen (PP) og Polystyren (PS).

Disse 3 polymerer står for ca. 50% af verdens plastforbrug, og anvendes i alt fra folier, emballager, møbler, legetøj, drikkedunke, ølkasser, medicinsk udstyr, slanger, rør, isolation mm.

Basispolymererne (især PP) kan desuden tilsættes en lang række additiver for at tilføre specielle egenskaber. Det kan være kridt, talkum, glas, pigmenter etc.

Konstruktions Polymerer

Beskrivelse:

De tekniske plasttyper – også kaldet konstruktionsplast eller Engineering plastics – er en gruppe af plastmaterialer, der anvendes til krævende opgaver.

Her stilles der højere krav til egenskaber som f.eks. slagstyrke, stivhed, kemisk resistens, varmeresistens, slidstyrke og brandhæmmende egenskaber mm.

Konstruktionsplast besidder således en bedre kombinationen af fysiske, termiske og kemiske egenskaber end de såkaldte Basis Polymerer typisk udviser.

PVC

Beskrivelse:

PVC opdeles typisk i to segmenter – blød og hård PVC.

PVC er et alsidigt og derfor meget attraktivt materiale. Blandt de fremherskende egenskaber tæller transparens og god kemikalieresistens. Desuden opnås en høj grad af stivhed ved de hårde typer. Ved de blødgjorte typer opnår man derimod stor fleksibilitet foruden en høj grad af slagfasthed.

Én af PVC-materialets helt store fordele er, at det er ”født” selvslukkeligt – hvorfor man ikke behøver at tilsætte miljøbelastende brandhæmmere.

Alt dette kombineret med materialets høje genanvendelighed, gør materialet meget anvendeligt i mange sammenhænge.

Elastomerer

Beskrivelse:

Termoplastiske elastomerer er en meget bred produktgruppe af bløde materialer. De er alle kendetegnet ved høj fleksibilitet, men har hver især deres egne specielle styrker.

Elastomererne udviser ofte lignende egenskaber med gummi, men hvor eksempelvis TPE har den fordel, at den kan forarbejdes ved traditionelle termoplastiske processer.

Materialeegenskaber som kompression, olieresistens, transparens, slidstyrke, varmerestistens, soft touch indgår ofte i overvejelserne hos designerne, når den rette materiale-kategori skal vælges til fx bygningsmaterialer, automotive applikationer, sportsartikler, elektriske komponenter og husholdningsartikler mm.

Recycle – Post Consumer og Post Industrial

Beskrivelse:

Genbrugsmaterialer opdeles typisk i to segmenter; Post Consumer og Post Industrial.

I begge tilfælde udvikles der meget veldefinerede compounds af høj kvalitet. Post Industrial kvaliteterne er naturligvis af højere kvalitet og lidt dyrere, men faktum er, at Post Consumer kvaliteterne ofte klarer opgaven.

Som noget helt nyt og unikt tilbyder Plastcom også Bio-baseret Post Consumer materialer – såfremt reduktion af CO2 er et fokusområde.

Additiver:   Funktionsadditiver som antioxidant, slip, antislip, UV, antistat, etc.

Basis Polymers

Description:

The group of Basic Plastics typically counts Polyethylene (PE), Polypropylene (PP) and Polystyrene (PS).

These 3 polymers account for about 50% of the world’s plastic consumption, and are used in everything from foils, packaging, furniture, toys, water bottles, beer boxes, medical devices, hoses, pipes, insulation etc.

In addition, the base polymers (especially PP) can be added to a wide range of additives to add special properties. It can be chalk, talc, glass, pigments etc.

Construction Polymers

Description:

The technical plastic types – also called structural plastics or Engineering plastics – are a group of plastic materials used for demanding tasks.

Here, higher demands are placed on properties such as impact strength, stiffness, chemical resistance, heat resistance, durability and fire retardant properties, etc.

Structural plastic thus possesses a better combination of physical, thermal and chemical properties than the so-called Basic Polymers typically exhibit.

PVC

Description:

PVC is typically divided into two segments – soft and hard PVC.

PVC is a versatile and therefore very attractive material. Among the predominant properties, transparency and good chemical resistance count. In addition, a high degree of stiffness is achieved by the hard types. The softened types, on the other hand, achieve great flexibility in addition to a high degree of impact resistance.

One of the great advantages of the PVC material is that it is “born” self-extinguishable – which is why you do not need to add environmentally damaging fire retardants.

All this, combined with the high recyclability of the material, makes the material very useful in many contexts.

Elastomers

Description:

Thermoplastic elastomers are a very wide product group of soft materials. They are all characterized by high flexibility, but each has their own special strengths.

The elastomers often exhibit similar properties with rubber, but where, for example, TPE has the advantage that it can be processed by traditional thermoplastic processes.

Material properties such as compression, oil resistance, transparency, durability, heat resistance, soft touch are often taken into account by designers when choosing the right material category for e.g. building materials, automotive applications, sporting goods, electrical components and household goods, etc.

Recycle - Post Consumer and Post Industrial

Description:

Recycled materials are typically divided into two segments; Post Consumer and Post Industrial.

In both cases, very well-defined compounds of high quality are developed. Post Industrial grades are of course of higher quality and a little more expensive, but the fact is that Post Consumer qualities often do the job.

As something completely new and unique, Plastcom also offers Bio-based Post Consumer materials – if reducing CO2 is a focus area.
