Improved Impact Properties at Room Temperature

Interseroh Dienstleistungs GmbH, Cologne, Germany, has developed a new formula of its recycling plastic Procyclen. Thanks to the use of special additives from ExxonMobil Chemical, this recompound made from post-consumer waste receives substantially increased impact resistance, which leads to even greater resilience, especially at room temperature.

“This latest generation of Procyclen is particularly suitable for products in the logistics segment, which are subjected to strong, recurring loads”, said Dr Manica Ulcnik-Krump, Head of Business Unit Recycled-Resource at Interseroh. As a first application reusable crates and pallets made of Procyclen with Exxon additives have been used in different areas of supply chain management.

The use of Vistamaxx performance polymers was previously reserved for non-recycled products made from primary raw materials, making this the first time it has occurred in the field of plastics recycling. “We are very happy that, together with Interseroh, we are now also making further progress in the area of plastics recycling and can support the development of high-quality recycling plastics”, said Christoph Warmeling, Sales Developer Central & Eastern Europe Area, Plastics & Resins EMEAF, EMCCE of ExxonMobil Chemical Central Europe GmbH. According to Warmeling, Vistamaxx performance polymers are based on propylene and make it possible to modify the impact resistance, and also the flowability and elasticity of the material, in any dimensions that the customer requests.

Interseroh, which belongs to Alba Group, developed the new Procyclen formula at its competence center for plastics recycling, in the Slovenian city of Maribor, which was opened one year ago. At this competence center, for the first time, Interseroh is bundling its entire research and development activities in the field of plastics recycling. Interseroh manufactures its recycling plastics in its own internally developed Recycled-Resource procedure, which is based on a complex upcycling process. After comprehensive high-tech sorting comes recompounding, consisting of extrusion, restabilizing, rebuilding of the molecular structure and chemical modification with additives, in order to achieve exactly the plastic characteristics desired by the customer.
