Effect of Recycling on the Rheological, Mechanical and Optical Properties of Polycarbonate

2013 Acta Polytechnica Hungarica  
The research was aimed at analyzing the polycarbonate scrap arising during production and its possible secondary utilization. The analysis of morphological, rheological and thermal data revealed significant differences between the original pellets and the reground material obtained from injection molded parts. Test specimens were injection molded from various mixtures of the virgin and the reground material, and their mechanical and physical properties were analyzed. Based on the results the
