Welcome to Imerys Performance Additives Division

Recycled Plastics

Formerly REGAIN polymers, ImerPlast UK Ltd is one of the largest European producers of recycled polyolefin compounds in Europe. Combining access to the Imerys mineral range and in-depth knowledge of the effects of minerals in polymers with our ground-breaking polyolefin compatibilization technology, has made us a world-class player in the recycling field.
We purchase baled, post-consumer mixed polyolefin (MPO) waste (including PE, PP and PS), as well as some post-industrial material, which we reprocess to exacting standards in order to displace virgin resin from engineered applications.
By employing the latest technologies at all stages of the process-analysis of incoming raw materials, sorting, grinding, washing, blending and compounding-and through the use of our unique additive package, we can improve the properties of recycled plastics to make our compounds behave like virgin polymers suitable for a wide range of end-use applications.
Everything we do is audited to EuCertPlast standards to ensure we meet best environmental standards in all our activities.
