Recycled plastic

- Aug 09, 2019-

  Recycled plastic is the reuse of plastic, which is accomplished through the crushing operation of mechanical blades.

Recycled plastics refer to the plastic raw materials obtained after the waste plastics are processed by physical or chemical methods such as pretreatment, melting granulation and modification, which is the reuse of plastics.

Use

Plastic has good processing properties, easy to form, such as: blowing, extrusion, pressure, free cutting, easy to welding. In production and life, there are many plastics can be granulated, such as waste food bags, sandals, wires, wire board, agricultural film, pipe, barrel, basin, packaging belt and all kinds of waste plastic products can be repeatedly shaped and processed to produce plastic raw materials, and then through special technology and formula, used for manufacturing machine parts and components; Can be used to make water pipes, agricultural machinery and tools, packaging bags, cement bags; Can replace some wood products; Can be used to make all kinds of plastic bags, buckets, basins, toys and other plastic products, living utensils.

Wide prospect of recycled plastic, granulation plastic waste, (plastic particles) sales, plastic enterprise demand is big, a medium-sized agricultural film factory, in need of polyethylene particles more than 1000 tons, a medium-sized shoe factory in need of PVC particles more than 2000 tons, a smaller private enterprises, in need particles are also more than 500 tons, so the plastic particles gap is very big, can meet the demand for plastic manufacturers, therefore, have very good market, excellent benefits. Sources of waste plastic raw materials are wide, where there are people there are waste plastic, easy to buy, cheap price (everywhere so), a city daily consumption of plastic food bags and other plastic products up to more than 10 tons, rural areas also have a lot of waste plastic recycling, plastic particles do not worry about the market.

Advantages

1, the world's resources is always a hot topic for mankind, the slogan of saving resources and protecting the environment has been slowly into the heart, plastic buried in the ground a few hundred years also does not decay, and so the awakening of recycling reworked material is inevitable, so people through the recycling of resources, can it be the real environmental protection and energy saving. Reworked material's biggest advantage is definitely cheaper than the new material price, though it's on the overall performance and attributes are not as good as new material is strong, but we don't need to use in many products made the properties and performance of all the good material to make it, so that wasted a lot of a lot of unnecessary attributes, and the reworked material is different, according to different needs, only need to processing some aspect of property, can produce the corresponding products, so not to waste resources, plastics is made from petroleum refining products, oil resources are limited, so recycling recycled plastic can save oil resources.

2, because of the plastic can not naturally degrade, has become the number one enemy of human beings, has also led to many animal tragedies. For example, monkeys, pelicans, dolphins and other animals in the zoo will mistakenly swallow the plastic bottle no. 1 discarded by tourists, and finally die painfully due to indigestion. Looking at the beautiful and pure sea, when we get close to it, we can see that it is filled with all kinds of plastic garbage that cannot be contained by the ocean. In the intestines of many dead seabirds, we found all kinds of undigestible plastic. Therefore, recycling recycled plastic can prevent large amounts of plastic waste products from being thrown around and thus be swallowed by animals.

Disadvantages

1. It is very difficult and economically uneconomical to recycle waste plastics.

2. The heat resistance of plastics is poor and easy to age.

The performance changes

PVC: color change after regeneration is more obvious, a regeneration after extrusion with light brown, three times is almost opaque brown, than the viscosity in the second time is unchanged, more than two times has a tendency to decline. Stabilizers should be added during regeneration of both rigid and flexible PVC. Mixed abs1%-3% can be added during regeneration to make the remanufactured products shiny.

PE: after regeneration, the properties of PE are reduced and the color turns yellow. After multiple extrusions, the viscosity of high-density polyethylene decreases and that of low-density polyethylene increases.

PP: in the first regeneration, the color is almost unchanged, the melt index rises, and the melt index still rises when the color increases more than twice. After regeneration, the fracture strength and elongation are decreased, but there is no problem in use.

PS: the color turns yellow after regeneration, so the regeneration of PS is generally for color difference. The degradation degree of the regenerated material's properties is directly proportional to the regeneration times. The fracture strength has no obvious change when the dosage is less than 60%, and the limit viscosity has no obvious change when the dosage is less than 40%.

ABS: the color changes significantly after regeneration, but the performance does not change significantly when the dosage is not more than 20-30%.

Nylon regeneration also has problems of discoloration and performance degradation. Regeneration elongation decreases, but elasticity increases.
