We don’t just live for today, but also for tomorrow. The recycling department based at our site in Rottenacker specializes in the processing of homogenous scrap materials. It handles both own-generated waste from our filament production as well as scrap from our customers and from external suppliers and converts it into re-usable product again. The polymers we process include PA 6, PA 6.6, PA 6.10, PA 6.12, PBT, PET, PP and PPS.
The base materials which go into our recycling process come from a multitude of sources: we process fibres, filaments, fabrics, non-wovens, extrusion set-up waste and regrind. The resulting recycled product can be used for extrusion, compounding and injection moulding applications. Manufacturing quantities start from around 2000kg.
Each one of our Octabins is subject to detailed laboratory tests, and all data relating to MFR values and other important properties is recorded. This offline data is then verified online against parameters such as temperature, pressure and lifetime of the screen changer.
Our regranulate materials are packaged in aluminium-lined sacks or in PE film lined Octabins containing 800 – 1300kg net weight.
