Axion Polymers has launched three grades of polymers recycled from end-of-life automotive and WEEE resources.
The new polymers include Axpoly ABS52 1000, which is suitable for moulding parts that require durability and longevity; a grade of polyethylene Axpoly PE51 1090, which has properties similar to HDPE; and polypropylene Axpoly PP51 1093, which withstands an applied top load without flexing.
According to Salford-based Axion, the ABS52 1000 offers up to 70% carbon savings compared with virgin plastics.
Commercial operations manager Steve Bell said: “As a new engineering polymer, PP51 1093 is an innovative example of a customer-driven variant of our standard PP grade PP51 1000, and demonstrates how we can tailor-make compounds to meet challenges from our customer base.”
Axion Group specialises in developing innovative resource recovery and processing solutions for recycling waste materials. It works with clients within the recycling and process industries on the practical development of new processing and collection methods.
