Axion Polymers: ‘Demand for quality recycled polymer at record levels’

  • 25 Oct 2021

Demand for quality recycled polymers is at record levels due to extra demand from a wide variety of industry and manufacturing sectors, according to Manchester-based plastics recycler Axion Polymers.

Speaking after exhibiting at the 2021 Interplas Show, Mark Keenan, Business Development Manager, comments: “There is a real shortage in the market for quality recycled material that we are seeing day in day out. We get asked for supply more than ever before.

“There was significant interest from visitors considering switching to recycled material and people were particularly interested in our secure infeed supply given the current material supply shortages.”

Axion Polymers showcased its range of locally sourced and produced Axpoly® recycled PP and ABS polymers grades at the show, which Mark says was ‘a great success, a very positive experience for us as a business and for the industry as a whole’.

With the automotive and electronic industries, in particular, making commitments to future use of recycled material, Axion Polymers believes this will only increase demand for sustainable solutions for all types of manufacturers.

Amid reported shortages of virgin material supply, Axion Polymers’ established and fully tested grades from its advanced re-processing plants offer a reliable, UK-sourced alternative 100% recycled content as good as virgin in performance.

Standards

Axion produces its range of high-quality Axpoly® PP (polypropylene) and ABS (Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene) engineering grades to ISO 9001 quality standards.

UK-generated end-of-life vehicles (ELV) and WEEE are processed by Axion’s parent company S Norton & Co, separating waste plastics for processing by Axion’s own plants and providing a secure infeed material supply.

Mark continues: “It has been three years since the last Interplas Show and we were delighted to be back. While the show is a great place to attract new business and network with all parts of the industry, for me it was just as important to meet existing customers to make sure they are happy with our service.”

At its in-house laboratory and testing facilities, Axion’s expert team works with customers to formulate specific grades to match their polymer physical properties requirements. Trials can also take place in house, and at customers’ own factories to ensure the recycled polymer is suitable for customers’ particular applications.

Axion Polymers is part of the Axion Group that develops and operates innovative resource recovery and processing solutions for recycling waste materials. The Group works with a wide range of clients within the recycling and process industries on the practical development of new processing and collection methods.
