Polycarbonate sheet recycling

What is a polycarbonate sheet?

Polycarbonate sheet is a strong, transparent plastic with excellent impact resistance. It is used as a glass alternative due to its lightweight, UV resistance, and formability. Widely used in construction, automotive, medical, and other industries.

PC sheet recycling

Polycarbonate (PC) sheets are recycled through various methods. The most common approach is mechanical recycling, which involves shredding and melting the sheets to produce pellets or flakes. These pellets can then be used to create new polycarbonate products. Another method is chemical recycling, where the sheets are broken down into their constituent molecules and then used as raw materials to produce new plastics or other products. Recycling PC helps reduce waste and conserve resources. However, it’s essential to ensure proper sorting and collection to maintain the quality of the recycled material.

Can polycarbonate scrap be ♻ recycled?

Polycarbonate scrap can be recycled through mechanical or chemical processes. Mechanical recycling involves collecting, cleaning, shredding, and melting the scrap to form pellets for manufacturing new products. Chemical recycling breaks down the scrap into constituent molecules, which can be used as raw materials for creating new plastics or other items.
