Centriforce Products is relatively unique within the UK as a complete plastics recycler / reprocessor. Although there are many companies that call themselves ‘recyclers’, there are very few who actually source waste plastic materials and turn them into complete, finished products, with a 'start to finish' recycling process.
So how is plastic recycled? At Centriforce we take scrap or waste plastics from a variety of sources which can include industrial scrap, post-consumer and retail. The material, for example bottles, film, lump or even pipes, arrives with us usually in baled format. These raw materials are then separated (if required), downsized and changed into a granular form which we can use as a feedstock for the extrusion processes as illustrated below.
Some Centriforce recycled plastic products are utilised in the form they come off our production lines. However many are further processed or fabricated into a wide variety of end-use products. Centriforce recycled plastics can normally be utilised and worked in a similar way to traditional materials such as plywood, timber, steel and even aluminium.
By carefully sourcing plastic feedstocks from a variety of, primarily UK-based companies, we can produce high specification, technical products to meet our customer needs.
