Efficient PMMA Plastic Recycling
Acrylic requires specialist handling and equipment. At Plastic Expert, we are proud to be one of the few specialist centres in the UK offering acrylic recycling.
Designated as a Group 7 plastic, many recycling companies do not have the facilities to recycle acrylics such as PMMA sheets or panels. Due to this, acrylic waste is not being recycled as much as other plastic materials.
While companies and manufacturers may be keen to recycle acrylic PMMA scrap and waste, the limited availability of effective acrylic recycling facilities has prevented many organisations. With Plastic Expert, however, businesses across the UK can benefit from a high quality dedicated acrylic recycling service.
Your scrap acrylic sheets or other acrylic waste can be recycled into a range of products. During the recycling process, molten lead is added to the acrylic which separates methyl methacrylate from the catalyst. The acrylic resin this creates is created back into flat sheets or shapes.
