Star Plastics is one of a limited number of plastics companies in the United States that operates a specially designed process to identify and differentiate mixed polymer stream materials.
Our Drying capabilities utilize desiccant dryers to remove moisture from your material. We are able to remove moisture from even the most hydroscopic materials, leaving the final product ready for processing. We can package your dried material into heat-sealed 25 kg moisture-barrier bags or foil-lined Gaylord boxes.
Classification, also known as "screening," is a way of ensuring the size consistency of your material through a process that removes "Longs" and "Fines" from your prime products.
Optical Color Sorting
The state of the art technology to help you salvage your prime material by providing quick turn-around and greater than 99% accuracy in upgrading your materials. Our equipment can color sort as well as identify and remove material with speck contamination.
