Baerlocher Featured Stabilizers for Recycling at International Polyolefins Conference

Published on 2021-02-26. Author : SpecialChem

BaeropolBaerlocher USA, part of the Baerlocher Group, highlighted the contributions of its advanced resin stabilization technology (RST) to the circular economy at the virtual 2021 SPE International Polyolefins Conference, through the company’s virtual exhibit and presentation.

As a Gold event sponsor, the company exhibited detailed information on Baeropol® T-Blend stabilizers, based on Baerlocher’s RST platform, which can help increase the percentage of recycled content that can be successfully incorporated in extrusion blow molded high-density polyethylene (HDPE) bottles and polyethylene (PE) film.

Stabilization to Prevent Degradation of Polyolefins

Baerlocher USA’s presentation, titled “Advances in Extrusion Blow Molding of Post-consumer Resin,” focused on the use of stabilization to prevent thermal and oxidative degradation of polyolefins during both the mechanical recycling and molding processes. During the presentation, Baerlocher USA’s Technical Specialist Ian Query discussed the results of a rigorous Baerlocher study on early stabilization of post-consumer polyolefin materials to preserve their mechanical properties, improve process stability and enhance end-product quality.

Baerlocher’s long-term commitment to the greater sustainability of plastic materials is aimed at making the circular economy a near-term reality,” said Andreas Holzner, global SPA business head, Baerlocher. “Our approach is based on strategic collaborations with technology companies, polyolefin producers, machinery suppliers, converters, brand owners and industry associations to promote mechanical recycling by stabilizing recyclates. For example, we offer custom stabilization formulations and can work directly with recyclers to stabilize post-consumer resins. These and other initiatives aim to expand the use of recycled polyolefins by improving their quality and consistency.”
