On modern automobiles, the bumper consists of a plastic cover over a reinforcement metal bar. It is attached to vehicles’ front-most and rear-most ends and designed to protect the car’s body in a collision by absorbing the impact. With the rapid development of the economy, more and more people can afford cars, and this results in an increasing number of cars being produced, used and thrown away. Vehicle bumper recycling is a good solution. Some recycling machines like vehicle bumper shredder can help to make the whole process much easier.
Bumpers comprise a large proportion of the plastic material used on automobiles. Conventionally, scrap vehicle bumpers are incinerated to recover heat energy (thermal recycling). With the growing environment protection consciousness and improvement in technology, end-of-life vehicles (ELV) bumpers are now collected and recycled into raw plastic resin for use in producing new plastic products such as green mesh, geogrid, building materials, waterproof materials, etc. Raw material recycled from waste vehicle bumpers can also be made into new vehicle bumpers by mixing the raw material with 7% glass fiber as well as a certain percentage of PBT material. Such green recycling not only improves the material recycling ratio (MRR) but also makes a significant contribution to the more effective use of resources.
In vehicle bumper’s recycling process, unwanted materials such as metal attachments will be removed firstly, and then the plastic material is shredded into small pieces. After the coating is removed, the crushed small pieces will be further washed and dried. At last, after sorting, the cleaned pieces will be melted and produced into granules which serve as raw material for making new plastic products.
