IrgaCycle™ PS 030 G is an additive composition of stabilizers to improve the durability of rigid articles made with polyolefin recyclates.

This product is designed specifically for re-stabilization of post-consumer and post-industrial rigid polyolefin recyclates during re-granulation or conversion steps. The product enhances the processing and long-term stability of recycled plastics. It is especially suited for HDPE and PP recyclates sourced from bottles, caps, containers, crates, bins, or PP and HDPE scrap films.

Mitigate common recycled resins issues:

  • Contamination with prooxidative species (e.g. metal ions)
  • Inconsistent processing behavior, mechanical failure
  • Depleted initial stabilizer packages
  • Presence of pre-oxidized polymer chains and low molecular weight oxidation products
  • Insufficient shelf life

Depending on the residual stabilizer content, quality, and oxidation state of the recycled material, IrgaCycle™ PS 030 G is recommended in quantities from 0.1 to 0.5 %.

Features and Benefits:

  • Helps to increase post-consumer recyclate in the final plastic article
  • Stabilize the recyclate during melt processing and help to maintain the melt flow
  • Increases durability and extends shelf life of final plastic article made from recycled polymeric material
  • Dust-free, easy-to-handle pellet form for best processing and re-granulation of recyclates
  • Rejuvenates depleted initial stabilizer packages in polymer
  • Improves durability of rigid articles made from post-consumer recyclates
  • Re-stabilize recycled HDPE, polyolefin, and mixed recyclates (source: bottles, caps, containers, crates, bins, PP/HDPE scrap films)

Performance Data:

Stable Processing of rHDPE

Processing stability

  • Post-consumer
  • Multi-pass extrusion at 250°C
  • Melt flow rate (MFR) measured at 230°C after 1, 3, and 5 extrusion
IrgaCycle™ PS 030 G

IrgaCycle™ PS 030 G reduces degradation during processing by maintaining the molecular weight of polymer.

IrgaCycle™ PS 030 G

Conventional solution shows only limited performance in recyclates. IrgaCycle™ PS 030 G outperforms conventional solutions.

Improved Durability in rHPDE

Long-term stability

  • Post-consumer
  • Oven aging of compression molded plaques at 120°C
  • Days until breaking
IrgaCycle™ PS 030 G

IrgaCycle™ PS 030 G improves durability of articles made from post-consumer rHDPE.

Stable Processing of rPP

Processing stability

  • Post-industrial
  • Multi-pass extrusion at 230°C
  • MFR measured after 1, 3, and 5 extrusions
IrgaCycle™ PS 030 G

IrgaCycle™ PS 030 G reduces degradation during processing by maintaining the molecular weight of polymer. 

IrgaCycle™ PS 030 G

Conventional solution performs inferior to IrgaCycle™ PS 030 G in recyclate.
