Recycling Polypropylene Scrap
Invented in the 1950s, polypropylene has been successfully used in a huge number of applications, from consumer goods to industrial equipment. It is, in fact, one of the most common plastics in the world—which means there is a large amount of scrap polypropylene lying around. Once recycled, polypropylene can be put to good use again.
The versatility of this plastic polymer makes it useful to a broad range of industries. Typical uses for this plastic include the following:
- Plastic hinges
- Reusable containers
- Carpets and rugs
- Lab equipment
Polypropylene has a number of attractive features. It boasts a high melting point (the temperature at which it turns from solid into liquid), which makes it useful for applications that must endure intense heat. Because it does not conduct electricity well, it can be safely used in many high-tech products.
As experts in polypropylene recycling, we’re always interested in hearing from those who have significant amounts of this material.
Recycling polypropylene bottles, auto parts, and other products is an excellent way to turn useless scrap into cash. Feel free to contact us with your questions.
