Polystar opens showroom in the UK, with film recycling machine on display

The newly-installed plastic recycling machine in Manchester, United Kingdom is currently processing PP and LDPE film waste as well as HDPE regrind.

With this machine demonstration, Polystar aims to introduce its highly cost-effective packaging film recycling line in the European market, where the demand continues to increase. Polystar's showrooms in Russia and India have been receiving customers almost every week since 2012. In less than 2 years, Polystar has already installed 12 HNT-V recycling lines in Russia with proven success. Furthermore, a new showroom in Dubai (UAE), planned to open at the end of 2014, will be dedicated to test runs along with complete recycling system on display.

High Performace Recycling Machine
Polystar's high efficiency, one-step plastic recycling machine HNT-V is designed for the reprocessing of PE polyethylene (HDPE, LDPE, LLDPE) and PP polypropylene flexible packaging material, printed and non-printed. This cutter integrated pelletizing system eliminates the need of pre-cutting the material, requires less space and energy consumption while producing high quality plastic pellets at a productive rate.
In addition to in-house (post-industrial) film waste, the system is also able to process washed flakes, scraps and regrind (pre-crushed rigid plastic waste from injection and extrusion). This equipment is highly recommended for packaging film producers of commercial bags, garbage bags, agricultural films, food packaging, shrink and stretch films, as well as producers in the woven industry of PP woven bags, jumbo bags, tapes and yarns. Other types of material such as PS sheet, PE and PS foam, PE net, EVA, PP mixed with PU are also applicable on this machine.

Suitable Industry
Packaging Film Producers
Leftover waste of edge trim from blown film and cast film in the format of scraps (T-shirt bags cut-offs from bag making and punching processes), complete film rolls and sheet can be efficiently recycled in a simple process. The high quality, uniformed sized recycled pellets are almost like virgin material which can be put directly back into the film production line.

PP Woven Producers
In-house waste generated from the production of PP woven bags, non-woven, jumbo bags, PP raffia, PP woven sacks and tapes. The recycled PP pellets can be reused (100%) for production. In most cases in circular weaving looms and tapelines.

PS sheet and EPS foam producer
Production waste generated from EPS foam and PS sheet making lines can also be pelletized and put back into the production lines again.

Recycling Centers
Professional Recyclers who collect both post-consumer and post-industrial waste. The pellets quality can be improved by direct dosing of masterbatch and additives.
