The leading polymer distributor, Plastribution, has released the latest instalment of Price Know-How. Price Know-How helps plastic raw material buyers make informed purchasing decisions. This month, the combination of high inflation and stagnant demand is causing serious economic issues for polymer producers. The high inflation element includes energy, feedstocks, logistics, regulatory and labour costs.
With the ever-increasing amount of plastic waste collected for recycling, the ability to remove effectively contaminants including metal has never been more important.
Magnetic separators attract hold and separate ferrous metals, whilst metal detectors identify both ferrous and non-ferrous metal contamination.
Producing a mould tool can come at a large expense. Whilst this initial outlay is worth it due to the economies of scale that come with producing hundreds of thousands of plastic mouldings, avoiding unnecessary costs during the process is still important.
Selecting the right partner to work with is key to your success and bottom line.
