Birch Plastics Recycled Resin Division Specializes In ABS Regrind
ABS is derived from acrylonitrile, butadiene, and styrene. ABS maintains superb resistance to impact across a wide range of temperatures, as well as tensile strength, rigidity, and heat resistance. Acrylonitrile provides heat resistance and resistance to non-polar solvents. Butadiene provides rubbery behavior, and resistance to impact. Styrene also provides good processing characteristics. The advantage of ABS is that this material combines the strength and rigidity of the acrylonitrile and styrene polymers with the toughness of the polybutadiene rubber. The most remarkable mechanical properties of ABS are resistance and toughness. Even though ABS plastics are used largely for mechanical purposes, they also have good electrical properties.
ABS Plastic Regrind We Offer
After completing our 4-Phase Quality Control and Cleaning Process the ABS plastic regrind is sold in truckload quantities and less than truck load quantities from our Houston facility.

4-Phase Quality Control Procedures
It all starts with a consistent single stream post-industrial sourcing. Then each box is probed looking for foreign materials, paper, and foaming agent.
A team member will take a probed sample from the top, middle, and bottom section of each box. Our lab technicians then test the regrind in our certified melt index equipment to confirm the melt flow is accurate and to look for changing conditions in the resin that might surface once it has been melted.
After passing the first two parts of our quality control procedures the material is moved to the metal removing equipment. At this point the regrind is dumped through a magnet system while being watched by our trained technicians for any strange looking material that could be hiding in the box. If found, it is tested on our Perkin Elmer FT-IR spectrometer to confirm it is not a foreign resin and a melt index is tested to insure consistency.
The final stage of the process is the regrind is vacuumed into a Kice Aspiration System where the fines and paper are removed from the regrind and then is packaged in a quality Gaylord box with a liner and a lid. The box is then weighed on a certified scale.
Our material is packaged in Gaylord boxes.
Our product is quality tested and sold based off the physical properties.
Large & Small Quantities
We sell our recycled plastic resin pellets in truckload and less than truckload quantities.
