The careful selection of materials in the formulation of your compound is important to ensure the adequate performance and regulatory compliance of manufactured end products.
Without a considered approach, you increase the potential for material failure, unexpected costs and legal action.
There are many variables to consider, especially when utilizing various recyclate-based materials in your polymer materials.
Smithers support includes:
- Providing formulation recommendations for plastic compounds that include recycled materials
- Evaluating the properties of recyclate based plastics compound formulations in terms of mechanical and environmental durability to create technical data sheets
- Confidential third party sourcing of recycled raw material for compounders
- Advising on compliance of recycled compounds to regulatory requirements
