Axion's PIM polymers at PRE 2015


ERT's raw material supply partner Axion Polymers has announced that it will be demonstrating innovative applications for its Axplas range of engineered polymers produced from recycled plastics developed for ERT's PIM plastic moulding process at the Plastics Recycling Expo in Telford between 16-17 June 2015.

 In a press release issued today, see,  Axion announced:


"On Stand E022, the Manchester-based plastics recycler will showcase its full range of Axpoly® 100% recycled polymers created from a fully-integrated recycling process for end-of-life vehicles (ELV) and WEEE materials, including its new PIM (Powder Impression Moulding) formulations suitable for use in PIM moulding and roto-moulding applications.

Axion will be sharing the stand with its collaborative partner Environmental Recycling Technologies (ERT) plc with whom it has co-developed a novel process to blend polymers derived from the difficult-to-recycle residual mixed plastic fractions.

Axion's specific PIM formulations can be used to produce lightweight, yet strong curved and shaped structural finished products, such as shower trays, furniture and automotive components, using ERT's PIM moulding technology.

Our unique process goes straight from mixed plastic to finished product, cutting out the intermediate extrusion steps," says Axion Director Keith Freegard. "While residual mixed plastic fractions yield some very good, highly-specified engineering polymers, it is a technically-challenging process.

"New developments, such as those we are working on, are needed to recover these valuable resources, thereby closing the loop and opening up new market opportunities in the Circular Economy and for UK-based manufacturers.""
