Plastic Raw Materials Ltd has been providing custom milling services and offering proprietary thermoplastic powders and pellets for over 20 years. Originally a sole-tradership set-up by a former leading light in the UK masterbatch industry, the company was incorporated as a private limited company in May 2005.
To begin with production was run on two unclassified Herbold pulverisers but within a couple of years a Gough Engineering vibracon sifter was dedicated to the larger of the pulverisers and a Kemutec drum sieve was purchased for deployment on the smaller pulveriser when so required, meaning that we were able to produce particle size calssified powders on either line.
Since 2015 the company has invested heavily both to increase capacity and also upgrade its quality management and packaging systems. First a new testing laboratory was built in anticipation of ISO 9001 : 2015 registration (achieved July 2018), followed by the addition of a Reduction Engineering (now MAAG GmbH) 85XLP pulveriser capable of producing powder classified to rotational moulding industry standard and this was complimented with a digital sack filler with which to fill heat-sealed sacks. Until analogue scales had been used to pack the powders in valve-sacks, the popularity of which had seen a steep decline over the years.
Within eighteen months another 85XLP pulveriser and digital sack filler were purchased, providing a far greater flexibility along with a vastly increased capacity. A third digital sack filler followed soon after which brought the packaging arrangements for one of the original pulveriser into line with the latest additions.
As tonnage increased so did the rquirement for more floor space and in early 2018 the operation expanded into the adjoining unit and work began on the refurbishment of both the warehouse and offices.
