Plastinum to produce Thermoplastic
Plastinum Polymer Technologies Corp. announced the commercialization
of its first compounds made from recycled mixed post-consumer plastics,
Infinymer Sml 31.1 and Infinymer Ssl 31.1.
Plastinum has been developing its Blendymer technology
— currently the only environmentally-friendly mechanical process to treat
mixed-plastic waste in an economically viable way. “It was thought to
be impossible, processing incompatible polymers into a usable compound.
We believe that the Blendymer technology proves the opposite,” said Jacques
Mot, CEO of Plastinum Polymer Technologies Corp.
The Sml 31.1 is formed by a polystyrenic base and the
Ssl 31.1 by a polyolefinic base. Both Blendymer compounds have the advantage
that their composition and structure mean they can be used in a variety
of ways - not only as new electrical and electronic components, but also
in products ranging from piping to furniture, from lighting to sports
equipment, from luggage to gardening tools.
