Title: Application studies of recycled materials in caps & Closures.
How suppliers offer an increased volume of recycled polypropylene and polyethylene to the packaging market; why caps and closures are applications of high interest.
Why many of the established tests and evaluations for virgin materials are insufficient for recycled materials.
Showing data and results for how chemical resistance like Environmental Stress Crack (ESCR) or integrated hinge performance in closures needs application-oriented tests to secure the required performance.
In a circular material future the need for tailored tests for the various applications is essential due to the complex source of recycled materials (post consumer waste, industrial waste, blends etc.).
