Here's a comparison between plastic regrinds and pellets

Plastic regrinds and plastic pellets are both forms of recycled plastic materials, but they differ in terms of their physical characteristics and how they are used in various applications.

Plastic Pellets

Form

Plastic pellets, also known as resin pellets, are small, uniform, and cylindrical granules of plastic. They are manufactured through an extrusion and pelletizing process.

Processing

Plastic pellets are the primary form of material used in plastic manufacturing. They can be melted and molded directly into new products without the need for additional processing steps.

Size and Consistency

Pellets are consistently sized and have a regular shape, which facilitates their use in automated manufacturing processes

Applications

Pellets are widely used in various industries for producing a wide range of plastic products, including packaging, automotive components, consumer goods, medical devices, and more.

Advantages

Pellets offer more precise control over the material’s properties and appearance. They are easy to handle and feed into automated manufacturing processes.

Plastic Regrinds

Form

Plastic regrinds are small pieces or particles of plastic that result from the grinding or shredding of plastic waste, such as post-industrial scrap or post-consumer plastic products.

Processing

Regrinds are often used as a raw material in plastic processing. They need to be melted and reprocessed to form new plastic products.

Size and Consistency

Regrinds can vary in size and consistency, depending on the process used for grinding. They may have irregular shapes and sizes.

Applications

Regrinds are commonly used in applications where the appearance of the final product is not a primary concern. They are used in less demanding applications, such as some industrial components, plastic lumber, and certain types of packaging.

Advantages

Regrinds are a cost-effective way to reuse plastic waste, as they can be produced from various sources of scrap plastic.
