Recycled Products

A practical example is recycling to "defloccaggio" or the separation of tiny fibers from plastics (or spectacle cases for jewelry, etc. ...) and "dealluminare" or the separation of various thicknesses of aluminum from plastics (yogurt containers, CDs, DVDs, etc. ...).

The mixed plastics - HDPE - PELD - pp - ps - PET - PVC - ABS - pc - pa - eps - pu - from municipal waste, are separated by type and color, low volume ground, dust collector paper and other volatiles , washed and brought to the decanting to separate the parts of inert dirt, dried and dried and then are packaged and weighed, numbered neck, taking a sample for the store.

Characteristics of various products:

PET (polietilentereflatato)
Saturated polyester made from ethylene glycol and terephthalic acid. Equipped with excellent transparency and gloss, high mechanical properties, good heat resistance and chemical, is used in many areas: in packaging is used for the production of bottles for water and soft drinks.

PE (polyethylene)
Thermoplastic polymer obtained by polymerization of ethylene. For the low cost of raw material and its versatility is one of the most widely used plastics. Is obtained in two processes: the high pressure results in a low density polyethylene (PELD) and is widely used in the production of flexible films, used alone or coupled with other materials (paper, aluminum) in the field of packaging. High density polyethylene (HDPE) is used in the production of rigid articles such as household goods, toys, boxes, tubes, bottles, bottles, etc. ..

PVC (polyvinylchloride)
Thermoplastic material obtained by polymerization of vinyl chloride. For the low cost of raw materials combined with its great application versatility is one of the most widely used plastics.

PP (polypropylene)
Polymer dell'idrocarburo unsaturated propylene. Equipped with high mechanical strength, thermal, chemical, electrical and high impermeability to water vapor.

PS (polystyrene or Styrofoam)
Polymer, the aromatic hydrocarbon styrene. It 'a thermoplastic material with excellent transparency and electrical properties, is used instead of glass, wood, electrical insulation, etc. .. A 'significant change is the polystyrene, which has a cellular structure with a very low specific weight and is used in thermal insulation and packaging.

Other types of polymers:
pehla - epeld - pomme - tpa
