When working with new, sustainable, recyclate-based compounds and polymers
, it is vital that you have confidence in their performance characteristics. You need to not only explore the physical and mechanical properties of sustainable compounds, but you also need to ensure any contaminants in the materials are identified and will not impact on performance.
There is also a need to ensure that you are using an optimized balance of recycled and virgin materials for maximum performance and to reduce the potential for issues in the future.
Read the article below to find out more about how to design effective materials testing programs
for your recycled materials, and see how Smithers can support with profiling the performance
of your sustainable polymers, compounding materials and provide processing support.
