The clean, sorted scrap resulting from the processing of Desmopan® and Texin™ can be recycled after appropriate treatment and drying. The proportion of recycled material should not, however, be more than 30 %. Fig. 1 illustrates the change in the mechanical properties of a selected Desmopan® grade using 100 % regrind material each time.
