Baerlocher to Address Recyclate for Packaging with its broad range of Experience using BAEROPOL T-Blends at PRSE fair

Munich, 13 April 2023 – At the PRSE, one of the important recycling exhibition in Europe, Baerlocher will further strengthen its position as innovative supplier for sustainable additive solution and share its latest experience in flexible and rigid packaging application. Visit our experts from 10-11 May 2023 at booth Q4.

Baerlocher, an established global supplier of additives for PP, PE and other thermoplastics, will again exhibit at PRSE in Amsterdam. The company promotes its unique Baeropol T-Blend product range which has been developed by Baerlocher´s Special Additives business unit. The portfolio includes its proprietary Baeropol RST stabilizer, which has formed the basis for a set of additive blends that have been found to be particularly useful in polyolefin recycling applications.

At its booth, Baerlocher will discuss a wide variety of industry collaborations aimed at developing and implementing innovative recycling solutions for the plastics industry. The product range includes fully formulated stabilizer packages under the Baeropol T-Blend range of products. The additives are available in a dust-free pastille form, much appreciated by recyclers, who often struggle to handle powder materials. Unlike additives in masterbatches, these products have 100% active content.

Improved processing of reHDPE in extrusion blow molded packaging
Driven by ambitious strategies, Brand owners are increasingly using reHDPE for packaging of for example detergents and personal care products, which has intensified the competition for reHDPE of sufficient quality for this purpose. Converters of such identified a variety of processing challenges and some of them found the solution by applying a Baeropol T-Blend from Baerlocher, which allows them to use lower quality feedstock, which would otherwise have produced an insufficiently performing recyclate. The Baeropol T-Blend also contributes to keeping process costs down, by allowing for an output which had not been possible without it.

Suppressing gels in rePE is key for film processing
Furthermore, in film processing the Baeropol T-Blends have become the go-to solution for recyclers that look for ever more demanding and thus more profitable end applications. Baerlochers Baeropol products are designed to be fed directly into the cutter-compactor unit by using low-cost volumetric feeders. The improved quality of the recyclate is then quickly made visible in, for example, a downstream film blowing line, where less gelling and fewer degradation products lead to fewer bubble breakages and a more homogenous mechanical performance of the film.

For both applications Baerlocher has proven its capability to assist companies along the entire value chain in reaching their goals for the manufacturing and application of recycled plastics. Our experts will be at the booth and assist in identifying innovative solutions for each customer’s individual challenge.
