Characterisation techniques for quality assessment of recycled plastics
2005 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
Polymers suffer physical and chemical changes and they interact with impurities during their processing and service life. Quality assessment is very important to guarantee a suitable use of recycled plastics in further applications. Reprocessing and accelerated ageing of PP, HDPE and HIPS were performed and the materials were analysed by spectroscopic techniques, thermal analysis and tensile tests to study the effects of the recycling processes and to assess the quality properties of recyclates.
