PIR Application

Post-Industrial Resin (PIR)

Post-industrial resin is plastic waste generated during the production process including industrial scrap, material with varying melts, or processing aids. Typical feedstocks for these products are items that were produced but did not make it to the consumer for a variety of reasons.

Mechanical properties of PIR can closely resemble the properties of their virgin counterpart. PIR feedstock is generally cleaner and more consistent than that of post-consumer resin.
