Abstract

This study presents physical property data on molded parts obtained during the first six months of operation of the ET/1 extrusion molding machine. It must be emphasized that the results presented here are preliminary results obtained during a 'learning period' and that the process is not yet optimized. It is shown that by selectively mixing certain components of the plastic waste stream it is possible to produce materials which show dramatic increases in properties.
