Interface Polymers demonstrates why SMEs are unable to break into recycled quality additives

March 31, 2021 | Case Study

The development of additives that improve the quality of mechanically recycled materials, either by boosting the amount of recycled material that can be incorporated or by reducing issues with recycled plastics like haze, is dominated by large resin manufacturersInterface Polymers is attempting to break into this space by developing a copolymer additive that increases polyolefin compatibility with polar materials, allowing a greater percentage of recycled materials to be incorporated in polyolefin resins. Interface Polymers has been developing this additive, based on its founders' research at the University of Warwick, since 2016 and is currently working to blend recycled PE and PP with EVOH, PA, PET, and PS.
