Industrial Polymer

The GRP compounding method of producing recycled Nylon-6, through the extrusion process, consumes less than 50% of the power consumed during the production of virgin Nylon-6 by way of polymerisation through reactors.

Use of reclaim rubber reduces energy consumption. Given below is an illustration of energy required to produce 1 MT of each polymer type.

Polymer Energy Consumption (GJ/Tonnes)
Natural Rubber 15
SBR 145
BR 110
IIR 190
EPDM 165
Reclaim Rubber 2.1
 

It requires 121,000 BTUs to produce 1 Kg. of new rubber materials.
