LUCOBIT RESINS AND THEIR USE IN RECYCLING GRADES
The recycling of materials -post consumer as well as post industrial is an important challenge for the plastic industry. Pressure from the legislation as well as consumer demand more and more drive the industry to increase the recycling rate. Often heterogeneous plastic waste as well as separated mono-fractions are not fit for the majority of applications. Scission and crosslinking of the polymer chains as well as incompatibility of different plastics account for their poor mechanical properties.
This approach turns plastic waste into valuable feedstock for various extrusion and moulding applications offering tremendous economic opportunities for plastic converters.
