Call us TODAY to discuss uPVC Scrap prices Scrap uPVC door & window frames. Our company deals with several hundred tonnes per month of scrap uPVC door and window frames. Much of the material is bulked and re-sized before onwards transport to our factory customers. We offer a collected and delivered in service depending on the location of material. Typically the material is moved in roll on/off containers, bulkers and walking floor trailers.
How our uPVC recycling process works
Once the scrap uPVC door and window frames have arrived at the processing facility, they’re inspected for levels of contamination. Providing the quality of materials is sufficient, the scrap uPVC frames are loaded into a shredder. Large pieces of steel are them removed by overhead magnets which is the first stage in separating the uPVC plastic from contaminants such as metal & rubber. Whilst metal is very recyclable, this cannot be used in the uPVC recycling process.
Other separation techniques are used to remove other metals such as zinc, brass and aluminium whilst state of the art colour sorting devices remove the black rubber materials. Eventually, the recycling process leaves a uPVC shred which is then reduced further in size to create a granule.
What happens to the recycled material?
The recycled uPVC material ends up back in new uPVC window & doors but can also be used to make downpipe and guttering. uPVC material can be recycled multiple times depending on its use, there are significant environmental and cost benefits to using recycled uPVC compared to virgin material.
