Press release date: December 1, 2006

Eriez, world authority in advanced technology for magnetic, vibratory and metal detection applications, is offering a valuable PolyMag Information Kit to help introduce the company's innovative PolyMag Process, the first automated method for separating and recovering multi-material plastic articles. The kit is available free of charge to qualified individuals. The PolyMag Information Kit contains 12 pieces, including an educational CD-ROM, PolyMag White Paper, patent overview, process flow chart, cost savings analysis sheet, frequently asked questions and answers and an Eriez corporate profile.

Sequential 3D blow molding, two-shot injection, co-extrusion and overmolding processes frequently produce scrap. This scrap is often made up of dissimilar plastics that need to be separated for maximum recovery efficiency and cost savings.

In the PolyMag Process, the first step is to blend a very small amount of the PolyMag Additive into one of the co-molded resins with an additive feeder or color auger. Then to recover the scrap that occurs from start-up, process variations or design changes, simply granulate the multi-material moldings using a standard plastics granulator. The regrind material is now ready to be run through the PolyMag Separator. The end result is a high percentage of resin separation, in less time and with greater safety than ever before possible.

By design, the PolyMag Additive imparts a low level of magnetic susceptibility without materially affecting the physical properties of the resin or molded part. The additive is a dry, free flowing pellet, with a non-polymer carrier that is compatible with a wide range of resins.

All resins, including thermosets and thermoplastics, are candidates for the PolyMag Process. As long as the multi-material part can be ground, PolyMag can help separate it. Eriez is recognized as world authority in advanced technology for magnetic, vibratory and metal detection applications. The company's magnetic lift and separation, metal detection, materials feeding, screening, conveying and controlling equipment have application in the plastics, process, metalworking, packaging, recycling, mining, aggregate and textile industries. Eriez manufactures and markets these products through nine international facilities located on five continents. For more information or to request the PolyMag Information Kit, call toll-free in the U.S. and Canada at (888) 300-(ERIEZ) 3743 or (814) 835-6000.
