AN INVESTIGATION OF THE EEFECT OF POST-CONSUMER AND INTERNAL SCRAPS ON THE MECHANICAL PROPERTIES OF RECYCLED PVC PIPES
Publication Date : 01/02/2010
This work studied the effect of using recycled scraps in the production of rigid PVC extrusion pipe. Different formulations with varied percentages of scraps were extruded and various tests carried out on the sample specimen to determine their corresponding mechanical properties. It was discovered that /.l9/8es valuable information to the industrialist producing PVC pipes in the country. If the use is found satisfactory it will reduce environmental pollution since most of these materials are discharged into the environment as landfills. It will also benefit manufacturers of these products and employment opportunities will be provided in the ploughing back waste to wealth.
