The Institute cyclos-HTP (CHI) has developed an approved test standard for the assessment of recyclability and recycling compatibility of packaging materials.
For our customers we offer the following laboratory services:
o Lab scale plastic or recyclate processing tests with homogenisation on a double-screw lab extruder and regranulation. Recyclates of polyolefins can further be converted into blown films. We offer these services in close cooperation with University labs.
o Physical, thermal and optical tests on pelletised recyclates, regranulates, recycling films and specimen like DSC, tensile test, impact strength, DMA, optical homogeneity, sealing properties and others. We offer these services in close cooperation with University labs.
o Based on the results we can certify the recyclability of a plastic material or the recycling compatibility of components and material combinations.
