Axion Polymers is forecasting a positive outlook for 2016 following growing demand for its high-grade recycled engineering polymers.

It’s popular Axpoly polypropylene (PP) is derived from automotive and electrical end-of-life feedstocks. The product helps a range of sectors meet their sustainability goals; from 

construction, horticulture and retail goods to manufacturing and automotive.

Axion Director Keith Freegard commented: “We have had a great start to the year and are selling to a broad range of reliable customers who value the environmental benefits and consistent quality of our recycled plastics. They also really like our ability to offer stable prices that are not linked to volatile oil pricing; that makes a lot of sense to a lot of customers.”

Bespoke polymer solutions

Axion Polymers’ supply tailored polymers to suit specific end-user requirements, including modified melt flow, impact resistance and tensile strength.

The company is now introducing a high-impact polystyrene grade, Axpoly r-HIPS 1000, to its product range. Suitable for a range of applications including horticultural products, DIY goods and automotive components, all grades are tested to ISO standards and are both RoHS-compliant and REACH-ready.

Keith continues: “Our focus is on further growing our customer base by developing a wider range of technical polymer resins and adding value by making novel plastic compounds that have physical properties that are usually difficult to achieve through standard methods.

Many organisations today are under pressure to meet certain sustainability targets. Invariably, they are obliged to deliver products that have provable, traceable and solidly measured performance in terms of carbon impact and are also sustainably-sourced. Having the in-house expertise to demonstrate this is welcomed by our customers. Overall we are optimistic and confident about growth in 2016.”
