Soft TPE Runners Shredder Machine

What is TPE? Thermoplastic elastomer (TPE) is a type of thermoplastic polymer. TPE has similar properties and performance as rubber. It is sometimes popular as thermoplastic rubber, but actually its processing is similar as plastic and is recyclable. TPEs are soft and flexible materials, they can repeatedly stretch to at least twice their size and return to its original size when stress release. So a soft TPE runners baler is a good baling solution. For further size reduction purpose, a soft TPE runners shredder or granulator is the right machine to go.

Why recycle soft TPE runners? 

Soft TPE can be made into various different applications through injection molding and extrusion. The molding and extrusion process generate a large quantity of waste TPE material such as sprues, runners and reject parts. Soft TPE runners range from small pieces to large blocks, and the quality of these scrap material is almost as good as new TPE raw material, thus properly recycling these plastic waste greatly saves resources. A soft TPE runners shredder is what you need for recycling purpose. 

Recycling process of soft TPE runners 

Shredding and crushing are essential recycling process of soft TPE runners. For large sized runners, a single shaft shredder can primarily reduce its size into manageable sizes facilitating further handling. For small sized runners, a granulator can directly cut the pieces into small uniform sizes. After shredding or granulating, the end particles are then turned into regrind. Using regrind is a great way to reduce cost, optimize material usage, and reduce demand on natural resources.
