Re-Stabilization Technology for Mechanical Recycled Plastics

International active South Korean company Songwon Industrial Co., Ltd., highlighted at the National Plastics Exposition (NPE) 2024 in Orlando (Florida) its commitment as a leading provider of additives and services designed to help customers in the plastics industry optimize the sustainability of their products. In response to the growing demand for circular plastics, the manufacturer of polymer stabilizers has developed “a pragmatic re-stabilization technology for materials with mechanical recycled post-consumer content (PCR)”, a press release said.

The company has presented its “Songnox Binary Antioxidant Blends”, developed to improve the process and thermal stability of PCR-based polyolefins. “These enable recyclers to offer materials with improved melt flow, durable mechanical properties and enhanced cost-efficiency”, Songwon described the benefits. “Similar solutions for other polymers with PCR content are also in the pipeline to further support the plastics industry’s successful transition to a truly circular economy.”
