WHITE PAPER | Processability and evaluation programmes for recycled plastic materials

Driving insight into mechanical recycling processes and recycled materials for flexible packaging 
In order to retain as much value as possible in the recycled plastics value chain, it is important to evaluate the processability and properties of  these materials. In this white paper, our expert, Marc Triepels, describes the steps of an evaluation programme which assesses the behaviour of recycled materials in relation to common processing approaches (cast film, blown film, and injection moulding) and discusses a set of tests which can be selected from, as appropriate to the intended end-use application.
