100% Post Consumer Recycled Plastic Lumber
Omachron® Plastics Inc. has continued to make great strides with molded plastic lumber from plastics 2-7.
On our own site we regrind materials from our facility, as well as materials provided by our local municipalities recycling centers. After drying the material we use our own propitiatory technology, namely our extruders, to produce quality lumber. The finished piece seen on the right is over 10 feet long.
Post-consumer contaminated plastics molded into industrial items
Omachron® Plastics Inc converts plastic waste consisting of post-consumer contaminated mixed plastics into finished goods needed by different industries. This process uses only 0.1 to 0.2 kWh of energy to transform 1 pound of post-consumer mixed plastics into finished products which is only a fraction of the energy needed to manufacture new plastics. This low-cost, small footprint and non-polluting process is used, for example, to make low cost, durable reels for the transportation of electrical cable, welding wire or flexible plastic tubing.
Mixed contaminated plastics molded into new products
Omachron® Plastics Inc eliminates plastic waste consisting of post-consumer contaminated mixed plastics by converting it into finished goods and products. This low-energy, small footprint and non-polluting process is used, for example, to make affordable, slip-resistant, water-permeable, interlocking Plasti-Block® Pavers and decking systems.
They are made of 98-100% recycled plastic and glass plus color additive. A demonstration video is here.
100% HDPE regrind molded for plumbing and lumber
The Omachron® molding equipment allows use up to 100% regrind in injection molding plastic parts that are identical in appearance and mechanical properties to parts made from virgin material. A true "no waste" process.
This has been proven to be effective in manufacturing plumbing products, hassle-free maintenance plastic wood, decking etc. They are environmentally friendly, and competitively priced by using 100% HDPE regrind.
Mixed contaminated plastics molded into new items
Omachron® is now molding mixed contaminated plastics into strong, viable, UV stable parts using
less than 20% of the energy of conventional recycling processes and without using chemical additives.
Industrial Plastic Waste Mixture
100% of industrial plastic waste mixture was used to injection mold end product with a requirement of a 12-24 month service life before it would potentially be recycled again. Omachron® is successfully injection molding
a mixture of different plastics including PVC and Nylon contaminated with metal. The specific mixture is roughly
80-90% PVC/XLPE, 5-7% nylon 6, 0.5% copper, 1-2% craft paper, and the balance is dust/impurities.
100% PVC regrind injection molded into plumbing union
A manufacturer of PVC plumbing fittings has waste product from its molding process that is ground down.
The Omachron® molding equipment allows the manufacturer to utilize up to100% regrind to mold plastic
parts identical in appearance and 99.3% as strong as parts made entirely from virgin material, even after utilizing material reground up to 10 times.
100% foamed polyethylene regrind molded into blocks
A manufacturer of foamed polyethylene products has scrap material from its machining and fabricating process that is ground into small pieces.
Omachron® transforms the waste foamed polyethylene materials back into finished blocks. These recycled blocks are sent to the manufacturers to be used in production just like virgin parts. A true "no waste" process.

100% HDPE machining/turning shavings and off-cuts molded into solid blocks - Zero waste facility
Omachron® uses this waste material in its entirety
to mold a finished block out of 100% regrind. This material can be reground up to 10 times with little,
to no difference in tensile strength.
That is hardcore recycling.
A company produced a significant amount of fine HDPE and foamed HDPE plastic waste turnings in the milling of their products using CNC mills, lathes and routers. Omachron® transforms these HDPE waste materials into new blocks for machining. This process enables machining shops to become a zero plastic waste manufacturing facility.
